Girls in Engineering

5-day non-residential summer camp for rising 8th and 9th graders.

The camp introduces the girls to computer science and engineering through a series of hands-on activities using the Scratch programming environment for creating 2D games and animations, and Lego NXT for building microprocessor based robots and interactive art pieces, among other things. Their week will include a tour of the Baskin School of Engineering (from Bio-engineering to Digital Games).
