Education Unlimited has partnered with Sally Ride Science Camps to encourage girls' interests in science by giving them hands-on science learning and activities in an environment that is supportive, enriching, and fun!
These unique, overnight camps provide 6th-9th grade girls an opportunity to explore science, technology, and engineering while having fun on a college campus.
Science Majors allow girls to choose an area of focus during some activities at camp. Each major will include several small labs and a significant culminating project. This year, girls will choose from:
Astronomy (Water Rockets Project)
Marine Science (Creative Creatures Project)
Robotics (Robotics Challenge Project)
Enrichment Activities in the afternoons and evenings give girls an opportunity for informal science learning, as well as leadership and problem-solving training, through workshops, experiments, guest speakers, and recreational activities. Students will also attend a mid-program excursion to a local science venue.
8th and 9th Grade Girls will participate in an advanced 10-day program that will allow them extra time to explore our unique majors and activities.

- Completed the exclusive Sally Ride Science curriculum

- Gained confidence and experience in a supportive girls-only environment
