Are you an undergraduate woman interested in disciplines such as science and engineering? You should consider the field of geosciences. The work of geoscientists affects our everyday lives. For example, we regularly use GPS features developed by physicists and geophysicists in our cars and on our mobile phones, we check weather forecasts developed by meteorologists and numerical modelers, rely on fuel for our vehicles that was researched, accessed, developed, and processed by geologists, drink clean and safe water from either local wells or municipal water sources that was regulated by hydrologists, develop or utilize property on land that has been analyzed by environmental geologists to prevent pollution, erosion, and ensure flood control, and safely commute along roads, tunnels, and paths that have been planned and developed by geoscientists.
The PROGRESS (PROmoting Geoscience Research, Education, & SuccesS) website houses resources for undergraduate students interested in geoscience on topics ranging from geoscience careers and undergraduate research opportunities to profiles on a number of geoscientists. By joining PROGRESS and creating a profile you will also gain access to password protected discussion forums. These forums are a platform to discuss courses, summer internships, challenges with being a woman in classes often dominated by men, etc. Join PROGRESS and gain the support of a large network of undergraduate women interested in the geosciences. Plus, it’s FREE!
