C-STEM Girls in Robotics Leadership (GIRL) Camps

The C-STEM GIRL Camps, held on college campuses, are focused on motivating girls in middle school to learn computing and STEM  concepts through a fun and exciting robotics-based curriculum. We hope this leadership camp will enable them to serve as leaders and inspire other young girls to gain interest in science and technology through creating robotics clubs on their school campus and participating in the RoboPlay Competition on the C-STEM Day.  The camp participants are eligible for the Girl’s Leadership Award

The curriculum is focused on

  • Robotics
  • Principles of Engineering
  • Programming in C
  • Film Production
  • Women in IT

At the end of the camp, students create a multi-media presentation of their creation, similar to the RoboPlay Video Competition, and present it to parents and peers.
