EmpowerSTEAM Summer Academy

Organization: YWCA National Capital Area

Breaking Barriers for Girls in Traditionally Male-Dominated Fields
EmpowerSTEAM Summer Academy is a five-week experience for girls ages 11-17. We know that women are underrepresented in STEM education & careers, especially women of color. More importantly, we also know it’s time to break those barriers.

Through EmpowerSTEAM, we further girls’ interest in pursuing STEM education and careers. Girls explore Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math in an engaging environment – and have a lot of fun while doing it!

Past Camp Modules Have Covered:
Coding and programming- program robots and create mobile applications
Science in medicine
Math as a basis for engineering
Environmental science, urban farming, and sustainability
..much more!
