REGISTRATION OPEN FOR 2018 EMPOWERSTEAM SUMMER ACADEMY
YWCA National Capital Area is pleased to offer the 4th annual EmpowerSTEAM Summer Academy. The summer camp, for girls ages 11-17, exposes participants to STEM in an exciting and engaging manner. Registration is free.
“We are excited to bring back EmpowerSTEAM, this year with a longer period of five weeks,” said Cheryl Hart-Johnson, YWCA National Capital Area’s Director of Youth Programs. “More time allows us to explore even more topics in the world of STEM.”
Highlights for 2018 EmpowerSTEAM:
- Exploring aerial robotics and drone-based businesses
- Learning the role of math in amusement park design – girls will build a (mock) rollercoaster!
- Creating mobile applications – go from concept to prototype, learning basic programming along the way
- Discover science in medicine – from physiology to exploring health science careers
EmpowerSTEAM also focuses on college exploration. Participants will enjoy a regional college tour during the final week of camp. Tour stops highlight the best programs for women in STEM in our region.
