Girlgeneering

Girls entering 5th, 6th, 7th,  8th and 9th grade in the Fall
Camp Dates: July 31-August 4, 2017 (8:30am - 5:30pm)

The goal of a girls-only camp is to increase the interest of high ability young women in a career in engineering by combating stereotypes, creating connections, reducing the issue of competition for resources with boys, and demonstrating the real-world social impact of engineering. This one-week day camp will introduce middle school young women to the field of engineering by showing how engineering is connected to personal issues, social concerns, and community interests.

By conveying engineering concepts in a more personal, social and community-oriented context and introducing them to middle school girls, we will show how engineers connect, communicate, and improve the world. Campers will experience faculty presentations and lectures, lab tours, field trips, hands-on activities. Some example topics and classroom activities have included:
