Our aim is to create an environment where boys in high school, just starting on their journey in the STEM world, can feel confident and comfortable to be themselves and ask the questions that really matter to them. In a two-night, three-day summer camp, boys in grade  9-12, with an interest in a career in the STEM fields, will interact with current male STEM professionals. In team building activities and group discussion, campers will explore their passions and strengths. Through STEM workshops and panel discussions, campers will apply their science and engineering knowledge while learning important life skills to help them succeed in the years to come.
