Governor's Institutes of Vermont - Science and Technology

Since 1995, I have worked, both the summer and winter, with motivated Vermont high school students in this wonderful, residential learning program. Each summer, 36 or more Vermont high school students spend 8 days at UVM doing natural science and creating interpretive materials so they can share what they learned with the public. The GIV Winter Institute takes place over a weekend and has evolved from studying snow on Smugglers Notch, in Stowe, VT, to an interdisciplinary intensive workshop on climate change that focusses on students gaining their voice to take action on this pressing issue.
