Connecticut River Museum’s
STEAMgirls Program
Featuring: Gabriel Chevalier
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.

Gabriel officially joined the Connecticut River Conservancy (CRC) as Lab Manager in 2018 after assisting with CRC’s water monitoring program through an internship with the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources. She tests water samples collected from rivers, streams, storm drains, and flowing pipes for the presence and abundance of E. Coli bacteria to determine whether those water bodies meet or exceed the State Water Quality Standard. Before working at CRC, she worked with the Appalachian Mountain Club as a data analyst and GIS specialist.

She holds a degree in Geology and Environmental Science from Mount Holyoke College. Gabriel grew up in Western Massachusetts and is excited to be working with CRC to study and protect the waters in this region. Her love of the local rivers began with canoeing trips along the Deerfield River, extended through college where she rowed daily on the Connecticut River and continues today with her work at CRC.
