There are two summer camps that might interest the young women in your lives. One of them is just for girls, and the other is mixed but could use a better female presence. Be sure to check them out and encourage the girls you know to attend!
Girls @ Virtual Ventures
Virtual Ventures is a non-profit organization whose goal is to engage youth in technology and engineering. We are excited to offer again this summer our Girls only Eng & Tech camps for youth that have completed grades 3-9. We are located at Carleton University under the faculty of engineering and design therefore students get access to cutting edge university labs. Camp activities include website design, programming, robotics (LEGO), animations, electronics, multimedia applications, engineering structures and other engineering challenges, etc. in a safe all girls environment. Campers would also get the opportunity to interact with female mentors in the field of engineering and technology.
The camps will run from July 9rd until August 10th; 9am – 4pm with extended care option (8am – 5pm). For more information and to register, please visit www.virtualventures.ca or email: email@example.com or call: (613) 520-2600 x5007
