Girlgeneering: A one week day camp


View this Opportunity's Website 


Academic Level:
K-8 Students
High School Students

Description:
Girlgeneering is a one week day camp for middle and high school young women that will take place July 28 - August 1, 2014. The goal of a girls-only camp is to increase interest of high ability young women 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. The Girlgeneering camp will introduce a variety of engineering fields to young women by showing how these areas of engineering connect to personal issues, social concerns, and community interests. The camp structure will provide faculty presentations and lectures, lab tours, field trips, hands-on activities and an engineering team project. 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. Contact person for the camp is Ashley Bokony, engineeringoutreach@uta.edu. A Girlgeneering Camp website is available at www.uta.edu/engineering/girlscamps/ or you can apply through the main engineering camp website noted above. The Girlgeneering fee is $250 and need-based partial and full camp scholarships are available. Application material will be available on the camp website in early February and we will begin taking applications at that time.
