Hello ladies this is your friend Lynn.
I had so much fun and learned so much in the 95 Rural Girls in Science that I went in search of other summer programs to attend. Last summer I went to a program called NASON, which stands for Native American Science Outreach Network. NASON was a four- week chemistry program at U.W. The prgram was for both Native American students and teachers who taught Native American students. We did a lot of laboratory work at U.W. but also took field trips and did work with environmental issues. The NASON program was excellent, I made a lot of friends and got a head start on the chemistry I'm taking in school now.
I want to be a doctor but am also thinking about being a surgeon. There is a medical program at the University of Washington called U-Doc. I am in the process of applying for it. [..new update.. Lynn was accepted to the U-Doc program in May 1997! She attended the U-DOC along with another Rural Girl from White Swan High School, Norma Alvarez]
There a many summer programs and internships out there. I would suggest that you get with your school counselors to find some that would fit you. They are a lot of fun and offer great experiences. Here are some programs offered at the University of Washington:
NASON--Native American Science
MESA Science Program for Girls
