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 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.

Your support makes a major impact:

$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

Create pathways to STEM careers for girls!
