In celebration of International Day of Women and Girls in Science on February 11th, a virtual Women Blaze Trails festival took place featuring women in science, exploration, and conservation from across the globe.   

Hosted by Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants, an organization that brings science, exploration, conservation, and adventure live into classrooms through guest speakers and virtual field trips, the event featured over 50 live video sessions with female explorers from a variety of STEM-related disciplines. 

This virtual weekend had a simple goal:  Celebrate incredible women, doing incredible things around the world, day in and day out. From the 12th – 14th of February, we met scientists, explorers, conservationists, filmmakers, photographers and more, showcasing their work, challenges, adventures, research, and expeditions…and we now share those sessions with you on the Lenovo EDU Community! 

Check back often to enjoy new amazing stories, breath-taking footage, and interesting anecdotes available to you anytime and anywhere that you have an Internet connection available.   

Topics include everything from studying Lemurs, to deep-sea exploration, to examining the Earth’s place in our universe.  If you’re a fan of science, technology, and all things interesting, this is a series you do not want to miss. 

In addition to celebrating these amazing explorers and educate the public on their expeditions and studies, the Women Blaze Trails festival aimed to raise funds for Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants to deliver a full month of live virtual guest speaker and field trip events for classrooms across North America.  Since 2015, Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants has hosted over 2,000 live events connecting a half million students with scientists and explorers from over 80 countries.
