Universe Quest

Carl Pennypacker at UC Berkeley runs Universe Quest, a summer program supported by the National Science Foundation to engage girls in science exploration.  We follow along with a group of Girl Scouts who get to look through a world-class telescope, go out to the beach to measure tides, design online games, and more.  "Our main goal is to get them interested in careers in science and technology, build their own self confidence, and see that there's a trajectory for them," said Pennypacker.
