These 2-week camps are taught by physics teachers who have attended gender equity training. Camps are held in high school classrooms and can accommodate up to 60 girls. Students take field trips to a University and to a technology related company. To introduce students to STEM careers, time is allotted each day for a female speaker working in STEM field.
Topics covered include problem solving, experimental design, Ohm’s law, series circuits and parallel circuits, velocity and acceleration, motion, trajectories, optics, and spatial skills.
