Pollen Power Camp will provide an opportunity for girls to study plant responses to climate change in the distant past and the coming century. Research groups of 8 to 10 campers lead by a female graduate student will use million dollar microscopes to image pollen giving the campers first-hand experience in a research environment with female mentors. The camp is designed for middle school age girls with an interest in plants and the environment. http://pollensummercamp.illinois.edu/
