ScienceScape 2016 thrills girls 'By the Numbers'


The College of Science’s annual ScienceScape summer camp successfully encouraged many different science fields to girls within a packed five days full of labs, fieldwork and fun.

From June 26 to 30, 34 girls from as far as Chicago were encouraged to explore their scientific curiosity through various labs focusing on several disciplines within the College of Science. Campers learned about deforestation, computer coding, formation of a precipitate, planet motion, Mars rover missions, tornado formation, atmospheric influences, motion detectors and pressure measurements through the theme, “Science by the Numbers.” They also researched and presented on several scientists that have shaped these fields.

ScienceScape is a residential camp designed to increase young women’s interest in science. Women In Science Programs achieves this by exposing rising seventh, eighth and ninth graders to scientific exploration and discovery. Be looking next spring on information to apply for our 25th anniversary camp.
