Science: It's A Girl Thing is a residential camp for girls. The goals are to provide girls with strong role models and dispel myths and misconceptions about science and careers in science. Campers experience university life, hands-on classes and recreational activities. In the past we have offered classes ranging from Nano Energy to Animal Science. Since the purpose of SIGT is to allow girls to explore new fields in science we ask students to write a short biography and then we assign them to classes based on what we believe they would find interesting. This approach exposes girls to diverse topics in science and sparks interests that could lead to a lifelong career.

Program Goals

Open to girls entering grades 5 - 11.
