National Mentoring Month

SciGirls  Mentor Moment

Girls benefit from relationships with mentors. Not only can mentors guide the girls through an inquiry investigation, but they also serve as role models, someone succeeding at a scientific career. As a NASA research scientist, the girls' mentor talks to them about clouds, the atmosphere, and satellites. She also introduces them to a citizen science project that asks students to make ground observations of clouds to help NASA understand how the satellites are doing.
