Summer Pathways is a seven-day residential program that gives young women the opportunity to discover the infinite possibilities that await them in scientific fields. Participants live in a BU dormitory, visit museums, industry, and research labs. They learn about careers in science and engineering and meet women working in these fields. A combination of field trips, hands-on activities, a taste of college life, valuable advice from career and college admissions experts, plus plenty of good old-fashioned fun makes Summer Pathways a unique educational experience. Included in the 2013 summer program is an overnight on the historic Roseway, a 137 foot schooner built in 1925. Participants will go whale watching, learn about the physics of sailing, and be active participants alongside the crew.
