February 11th is the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, join in and celebrate with a virtual 3-day festival featuring women in science, exploration and conservation from across the globe, brought right into your living rooms!
This virtual weekend has a simple goal, celebrating incredible women, doing incredible things around the world, day in and day out. From the 12th – 14th of February, we’ll meet scientists, explorers, conservationists, filmmakers, photographers and more, showcasing their work, challenges, adventures, research and expeditions.
This festival is 100% free to join in. Our goal is to raise funds for Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants to deliver a full month of live virtual guest speaker and field trip events for classrooms across North America. All we ask is that if you can, please make a donation and support our important education outreach. Since 2015, Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants has hosted over 2,000 live events connecting a half millions students with scientists and explorers from over 80 countries. What we do is and always will be free for classrooms everywhere!
