Fun and energizing video shows highlights of Detroit camp that fosters natural scientific and mathematical curiosity of young girls. Women are unequally represented in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields which we know is not due to unequal abilities. Developing confidence in school-aged girls is critical to closing the gender gap, not only in the job market, but in high school and college classrooms. As the school year gets underway, enjoy these campers (all on 100% scholarships from local businesses and private donations) find the encouragement, opportunity and the empowering belief that their potential has no limit.
Girls Who Code is a national nonprofit devoted to closing the gender-gap in technology and computer science fields. Check out if there is a Girls Who Code Club or summer program in your community or how you can start one.
