Nereid Bio to participate in Girls in Ocean Science Conference

We hope to inspire young women to pursue ocean science!

September 15, 2023

An annual event, the Girls in Ocean Science Conference connects female ocean experts and scientists with young women looking to explore ocean science-based fields of study and careers. Dr. Alyson Santoro of the Nereid Biomaterials team will be presenting on September 30, 2023.

Open to both middle school and high school students, the day-long conference brings together learning and mentorship as participants spend the day conducting research in labs and at sea aboard a local vessel. Young women who love science or who are just beginning to show an interest will come away with connections and resources that will empower them to continue their exploration and passion for the sea.

This event is hosted by the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum and sponsored by the Steinmetz Family Foundation.
