About Us

We are the Penn State chapter of the Association for Women Geoscientists. Founded in 2012, we combine a mixture of events, outreach, and fundraising to encourage women geoscientists in central PA. We are currently the only active chapter of AWG in the northeast US, and we have more than 20 active members.

Everyone is invited to join us for any of our activities, including breakfasts with women in geoscience careers, our annual chili and dessert cook-off fundraiser, social events (including potlucks, hiking, caving), and outreach opportunities!
