Founded and implemented by local high school students in 2017, She STEMs hopes to help young girls feel confident and capable by developing their technical skills through a hands-on introduction to computer science.
She STEMs Camp is a one-week camp geared for girls ages 11-15 (incoming 6th grade - 9th grade). Our camp will take place from July 22, 2019 - July 26, 2019 at the Harbor Bay Community Center located at 3195 Mecartney Rd on Bay Farm island. You must be able to attend everyday. This application is due by June 5, 2019 at 11:59PM PST, but we will be accepting students on a rolling basis (so apply ASAP)! For more information about our program, feel free to visit our website: https://shestemscamp.org.
We want to ensure that every girl feels comfortable and safe in the She STEMs community. At the same time, we also want our program to be inclusive and immersive which is why we feature interactive activities including:
-HANDS-ON LABS- 🙌Work with a variety of mini projects from app development to 3D printing, and bring home some of the projects you create!
-INDUSTRY SPEAKERS- 📢Hear from women in the technology workplace and college students who will share their story of entering the technology field. Learn about what companies do with technology, and how you might be able to work there one day!
-FIELD TRIPS- 🚌Visit your favorite technology companies and explore what it's like to work in the Silicon Valley culture. Learn about the culture in the technology industry and the other roles in tech.
-PROJECTS- 🧩Towards the end of the week, students will work in teams to create their own personal projects. At the end of camp, each student will present their projects to their family members, and celebrate what they've learned throughout the camp :)
-COMMUNITY- ❤️Connect with a wide network of girls from around the Bay Area, and participate in fun social activities together. We can't wait to have you join the She STEMs community!
