Hi there:

I'm a program coordinator in Continuing Studies at the University of British 
Columbia.  My program areas are science and environmental studies.  I myself 
have a B.A. in Biology (Oberlin '82) and a M.Sc. in Microbiology (UBC '88).  
After 10 years in labs, I'm thrilled to have a brand new career in which I 
still can use my science background.

I'm writing here today because I want to develop some cohesive programming 
around "girls in science" and am looking for models.  I've got some ideas and 
have spoken with folks about a few models, but would love to hear more before 
designing my program.  I have carte blanche regarding format.  It can be 
everything from intense workshops for "gifted" kids (I dislike the term) to 
informal evenings with girls, parents and scientists - or a combination of 
formats.

Any suggestions, opinions, thoughts will be greatly appreciated!

BTW, I agree that redundancy is a best-case scenario for a group like this!

Thanks in advance,
Heather Deal
