Girls in STEM

Experience innovation and discovery with one of our Girls In STEM Workshops or Camps!

Join us for workshops and camps designed and led by our stellar education staff, who help young ladies in grades 4 – 8 connect with real-world applications of STEM through design, programming, coding, engineering and more. 

Girls In STEM Summer Camps


(Grades 4 - 8)

June 29, 30; July 1, 2
August 10 - 13

Girls will take a hands-on approach to the world of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.  They will be introduced to architecture and engineering, physics, kitchen chemistry, and coding through experiential activities and design challenges.  The young ladies will learn vital communication skills while collaboratively working their peers in this fast-paced STEM environment. Please note, the cost of the 4-day camp is $50 and the July and August camps are the same content to maximize the number of young ladies able to be served under the grant funding.  Space in each camp is limited and registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. If a camp is sold out, add your name to the waitlist and if a spot opens up we'll contact you ASAP. Be sure to check out our Camp Policies before you complete registration!
