Girls Innovate Summer STEAM Camp

Led by Carol Brister

Rising 2nd-6th
July 15-19, 10 - 11:30 a.m.
$150 by May 20

The acronym S.T.E.A.M. stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Why then STEAM just for girls? Research shows that more and more jobs are evolving in the workforce today involving STEAM education. However, fewer women than men are going into these fields. We want to help change that and prepare our female students for job opportunities in the future in this unique area. Women are important in the areas of STEAM because they bring a different perspective and approach to many of the areas taught in STEAM education. Without many women going into these fields, we lose the opportunity to have intelligent, successful and well-rounded female role models in this area for our girls to emulate.  

Girls Innovate Summer STEAM Camp will reinforce skills from students’ core subjects as well as allow them to explore and create involving topics that are of specific interest to today’s young women. We will concentrate on students’ readiness for school with a focus on creativity, innovation, critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, and collaboration. Students will create, evaluate, and effectively utilize information, media, materials, and technology. Engaging students in a deeper understanding of real-world connections will better help prepare them for the fast-changing world we live in today.
