2017 C-STEM Girls in Robotics Leadership (GIRL) Camps

The C-STEM GIRL Camps are focused on motivating girls in middle school through peer mentoring, to learn computing and STEM concepts through a fun and exciting robotics-based curriculum. We hope this leadership camp will enable the attendees to serve as leaders and inspire other young girls to gain interest in science and technology through creating robotics clubs on their respective school campuses and participating in the RoboPlay Competition on the annual C-STEM Day.  All GIRL Camps  are funded by various sponsors and attendance is free for camp participants. In addition, camp participants are eligible for the Girl’s Leadership Award.
