Girls in Science 2017

(please click the images to enlarge)
Last Saturday Denver Botanic Gardens participated in the Girls in Science event at Denver Museum of Nature and Science.
Thousands of girls explored different science venues and met with women who are scientists in related careers. This was the third year the Girls in Science was organized and the third time for School of Botanical Art and Illustration to participate. In our clubhouse the girls learned about the roll of fungi in the ecosystem, and at the same time talked to representatives of mycology, herbaria, plant sciences, ecology, geosciences and scientific illustration who were all present in our clubhouse, Wonderful World of Fungi

 Our clubhouse before the doors were opened in Saturday morning 
 We were busy in explaining and answering questions.
 The young girls were very happy to illustrate the various mushrooms that we had on display.
