Women Who Walk Through Time

"Women Who Walk Through Time" is a free 30-minute video presented by the University of Utah's Department of Geology and Geophysics.

Appropriate for all young people (~12-18 year olds), but is specifically designed to interest and encourage girls and young women in the earth sciences. The video portrays three women earth scientists who introduce young people to the fascinating field of earth science, demonstrate what they do as earth scientists, and advise young people on how to prepare for a career in science. The video is intended for use by anyone interested in encouraging women in science such as schools, clubs, organizations for girls and young women, and parents.
The featured geoscientists are University of Utah Geoscience Professor and Departmental Chair Marjorie Chan, Associate Professor Susan Halgedahl, and Dr. Paula Wilson, now an adjunct faculty member at Weber State University. Download your copy now.
