Launched in 2006, the camps are run by the MagLab and WFSU. There are two camps: SciGirls Discover is a one week camp and SciGirls Quest is a two week camp for deeper science inquiry. Both camps accept rising 6th thorugh 9th grade students.
During their experience, campers can expect:
- An exposure to a wide range of science disciplines
- Indoor experiences (labs, lectures, demonstrations, walking tours)
- Outdoor field experiences (swimming, snorkeling, hiking, data collection)
- Extensive group work
- Interactions with local scientists and science educators
We are in the process of planning our 2021 summer camps. We are taking health and safety guidelines from the CDC and FSU into account as we make our arrangements. At this time, we are planning to offer small, in-person camps in June and July, however, we are prepared to pivot to offer an online camp if needed. Camp applications will be opened in early February. Please visit this webpage again or sign up for our Educator's Club to receive more updates. Thank you for your patience.
SciGirls Discover is a one week exploration camp for middle school aged girls who are interested in getting an introduction to different fields of science. Discover allows the girls to explore the diverse universe of science that they may not have covered in school. Through dynamic hands-on STEM activities with like-minded individuals and role models.
SciGirls Quest is an epic science adventure for middle school aged girls who are keenly interested in a journey in STEM fields. This two-week summer experience will ignite their pursuit of a future academic path in STEM as the campers experience a deeper look into the world of research with opportunities to work alongside scientists, and find the STEM path they want to follow.
