March is National Women's History Month, and the 2013 theme is Women Inspiring Innovation Through Imagination. The theme recognizes the outstanding contributions American women have made over the years in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The University of Alaska Southeast Sitka Campus honors the women's past contributions through programs such as Pacific Pathways, which gives Alaska women and girls an opportunity to start their own careers in science and technology. Women and girls can participate in job shadowing, mentoring and research with female scientists, teachers and researchers.
UAS Sitka Campus offers a core of general education and open-entry science and humanities classes that allow students to pursue their education while exploring the rich marine and rain forest environments of Southeast Alaska.
