GALS North Carolina


GALS is a free summer science program for high school students to engage with science while backpacking through the wilderness.


GALS will consider your application if you identify as female or are gender nonconforming. We especially encourage you to apply if you are a student of color, if you are from a low socioeconomic background, or if you identify with other groups underrepresented in fields of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). Anyone in 9th-12th grade who is able to hike while carrying a heavy (30 lb) backpack is encouraged to apply.
