Cowgirl Student Chapter
Association for Women Geologists (AWG) is a club supporting the participation of women in geoscience. The AWG Cowgirl Student Chapter is supported under the National Organization of Association for Women Geoscientists, based in Thornton, Colorado. Our local chapter adopts the purpose of the national association by encouraging the participation of women in geology, exchanging information, and networking students with professionals to enhance the growth of women’s interests and advancements in geoscience.
AWG holds bi-weekly meetings on Wednesdays at 5:30 in the Noble Researchy Center room 002. We hold fundraising events such as an annual Cowgirl Chapter Chili Cookoff as well as semi-annual bake sales. We attend outdoor adventure days at local elementary schools teaching kids K-6 about the rock cycle, minerals, fossils, and allowing them to dig for their own minerals in the sandbox we set up. We work in conjunction with AAPG to help local Boy and Girl Scout troops earn their geology badges by making learning geology fun for the kids. Activities for the club members include camping and caving trips, mineral collection, lecture series in geology, and networking social events with professionals in the industry.
