Please join the Wisconsin Maritime Museum on February 1st at 6:30pm for our Think & Drink series presentation “Keeping Girls Afloat- Black Girls Dive Foundation” with Black Girls Dive Foundation President Dr. Nevada Winrow and BGDF Alumni. The featured drink of the night will be the Wreck Diver. 

Learn how the Black Girls Dive Foundation (BGDF) empowers young Black women to explore STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) through marine science, conservation, and SCUBA diving. Hear from BGDF scholars about the skills they’ve gained in the program, from shark conservation and coral restoration to building and piloting ROVs and underwater photography. By broadening minority participation in aquatic based STEM sciences, BGDF is creating the next generation of social conscious divers and planetary stewards.

Alcohol and nonalcoholic drinks will be available for purchase at the limited bar. 

Doors and bar open at 6:00 pm. The talk and live stream portion begin at 6:30 pm. To access the live stream of this event, please register here:
