About

DU SciTech Summer Camp for Girls offers local middle school-aged girls from diverse and low-income backgrounds a week-long immersion in biodiversity and ecology, computer programming, technology, physics and astronomy. Led entirely by female faculty from DU’s College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, this camp is offered free of cost and provides campers with hands-on experience building their own computers they can take home, assembling and using telescopes, identifying local flora and fauna, and experimenting with circuits and wiring.

The camp works to increase participants’ confidence in STEM related skills, raise awareness and interest in STEM careers, and mentor participants toward STEM-related college majors or work. Notably, during the 2019 camp, the campers designed and conducted an experiment showing that streetlights increase the presence of invasive cheatgrass. After the camp, 9 of the girls continued to work on the project and are co-authors of the published scientific article, which was also highlighted in the popular press by outlets such as Scientific American.

$5 provides snacks for one camper
$10 covers a camp T-shirt for one camper
$20 covers a museum ticket for our field-trip day
$50 provides one camper with an insect collecting kit
$100 provides one camper with a telescope
$150 provides one camper with a “raspberry pi” computer
$500 provides one camper with all supplies for entire camp
$1000 will provide one camper all equipment, supplies and meals for entire camp


Funding for this project will be utilized for the summer 2023 camp. Thank you for your support!
