Summer might be a break from school, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop learning! Corridor-based Brookhaven College is hosting a STEM Summer Camp for girls entering grades 9-12 from the 2020-2021 school year. Sign up your daughters today for the free, two-week camp held July 6-16.
The STEM Summer Camp was created for girls with an interest in science, technology, engineering and math. According to a recent press release, “The program is designed to inspire underrepresented women to reach their full potential in STEM through peer and professional mentorship, skill building, educational planning, networking and career exploration.”
During the camp, attendees will participate in university and industry tours, meet engaging speakers and explore hands-on STEM activities. These include:
- Scanning electron microscope (SEM) experiments
- Animal dissections
- Visit from Technicbots, where students will build their own robots
- Meet with scientists from UT Southwestern and UT Arlington
- ATI physical therapist speaker
- Activities with National Society of Black Engineers
- Activities with the Fort Worth Zoo
The camp runs for two weeks, Monday–Thursday from 9 a.m.–4 p.m. Lunch will not be provided. Students must bring their own sack lunch, snack and beverage to camp each day.
