Why an All Girls* Camp?

According to a 2021 report by the US Census Bureau, women represent nearly half of the US workforce, yet only 27% of all STEM workers.  Educators believe this gap starts in early education through gender stereotypes.  Despite similar achievement scores among children of all genders in math and science, men represent the majority of students studying STEM fields in higher education.  Offering an all-girls science camp provides the chance for girls to take intellectual risks and reduce implicit bias in a setting where they can just experience science and try their best without other distractions.
