GOALS provides a free summer program for high school girls and gender-expansive youth to learn science hands-on while backpacking through Sequoia National Park with UC Davis and National Park scientists. During GOALS, scholars learn how to design and conduct field-based scientific experiments while developing leadership and outdoor skills. In addition to the two-week summer program, each scholar is paired with an UC Davis mentor to navigate next steps in their STEM career.
We believe in the power of young people as leaders, scientists, and outdoors-people. GOALS is an opportunity for people who have had that experience of walking into a classroom, a lab, or an outdoor space and finding that no one else looked liked them.
