Full STEAM Ahead!

July 17 – 19, 2017

Girls in Engineering & Science Day Camp is a three-day program designed for middle school girls to explore science, technology, engineering, agriculture and math during the summer break from school.  Faculty and students from the College of Engineering, College of Science, and College of Agricultural Science will lead students through hands-on experiments, exploring the natural environment and engaging demonstrations. The goal is to explore the world around us, to enhance confidence in problem solving, to meet new people and to spark our students' interest in important careers that can improve the world in which we live.

Sponsored by College of Engineering, College of Science and the College of Agricultural Science.
