STEM for Girls

STEM for Girls is a five-day camp designed to educate middle and high school aged girls about opportunities in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields. Our comprehensive program educates middle and high school age girls in the greater Milwaukee area about areas of study and careers within STEM—Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.

The experience includes opportunities to meet and speak with successful women working in STEM fields, workshops led by women scientists with hands-on experiences, mentorship from high school and college students, tours of local STEM-related businesses and more.
