High School Camps
Women in STEM (WiSTEM) on-campus summer camps and virtual academies provide high school students with the opportunity to explore STEM college majors and career paths, gain hands-on STEM experiences and STEM career skills, connect with STEM role models, and learn about university resources and the admissions process.
All current high school students are welcome and invited to register for any camp or academy that best fits their interests and high school grade. All WiSTEM camp and academy experiences are designed and facilitated with effective practices to recruit and engage girls in STEM. Camp and academy experiences feature STEM role models from our WiSTEM campus and corporate community and content from partners such as PBS SciGirls.
All WiSTEM camps and academies are open to any current high school student of any gender. All students and families are invited to weekly STEM Role Model Webinars throughout June and July and an end-of-camp celebration and admissions presentation.
NOTE: WiSTEM no longer offers residential summer camps.
