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 with their peers in this fast-paced STEM environment. Please note, the July and August camps are the same to maximize the number of young ladies able to be served under the grant funding.
Join us for workshops designed for young ladies in 4-8 grade, who will participate in activities that connect with real-world applications of STEM through design, programming, coding, engineering, and more. All workshops are held from 12:00 - 2:00 PM in the newly renovated STEM Labs at Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts. Tickets are just $5 per girl, per workshop! Any questions or concerns can be directed to education@whitakercenter.
Participants will identify the best ways to clean dirty water using a variety of materials to engineering water filters.
Using Minecraft’s Hour of Code, girls will step into a programmer’s shoes and explore the different aspects of video game coding.
What if we were to go back to the moon - for good? Participants will develop and present out-of-this-world designs for a future moon colony.
Girls will mix the perfect pigment and streamline the printmaking process to produce fabulous prints - using Pennsylvania’s native plants as inspiration!
Participants will learn about hurricane forces and work as a team to design, build, and test structures that can withstand them.
Coding the Minecraft biosphere will help girls discover how Artificial Intelligence is being used to collect data about forest fires.
Girls will learn the science behind cantilevered construction as they tackle design challenges based on iconic landmarks.
In this program, girls must find a way to extend their reach —literally!—as they develop a method to build mechanical grabbers.
