Webinar Description:

Lyda Hill Philanthropies, Nautilus, and the American Geosciences Institute (AGI) are proud to collaborate through Earth Science Week to advance the vision of IF/THEN®, an initiative of Lyda Hill Philanthropies in promoting girls and women in STEM.

The webinar will introduce you to four trailblazing scientists' stories developed to provide inspiration to geoscience students, professionals, and enthusiasts everywhere. During the webinar we will also explore the curriculum connections modules developed around the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) IF/THEN® Ambassadors. These activities serve as exciting "jumping-off points" for educators and students to further explore the geosciences — the infinite interactions of natural systems and processes that make up our geosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere.

Please join us for an introduction to this important collection of lessons and to hear from the AAAS IF/THEN® Ambassadors in person.
