Connecticut River Museum’s
STEAMgirls Program
Featuring: Erica Cirino
FREE Program!

A virtual program to serve girls, age 10-16, interested in studying the academic areas of STEAM: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics.

Thanks to a generous grant through The Petit Family Foundation, we are able to offer this program free of charge.

Once monthly after school for a four-month period, STEAMgirls participants meet and speak with accomplished young women, learning first-hand about the career successes women are experiencing in all areas of STEAM; providing young girls with knowledge that may ignite their passion for the future.

Erica Cirino is a writer, artist, and wildlife rehabilitator who explores the intersection of the human and non-human worlds. Her work is focused on the human connection to nature and human impact on planet Earth. She is currently writing a book about the global plastic pollution crisis and her experiences covering the issue, documenting plastic pollution in nature, the latest science that measures the extent of the crisis, and new solutions that could prevent further ecological destruction and harm to wildlife. Her work has taken her sailing twice across Pacific, across the Atlantic, in Danish waters, in California’s waters, and around Iceland; to Southeast Asia, across the US and Western Europe; the Caribbean; Polynesia and beyond. When she’s not on the road with her notebooks and cameras, she lives in Essex, Connecticut, and Copenhagen, Denmark.
