Middle School Girls
Hosted by the University of Evansville College of Engineering and Computer Science, the camp is designed to give middle school girls a better understanding of what types of opportunities are available in fields most closely related to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) through hands-on projects and other activities. Team-building and confidence-building activities are also part of the fun.
