Conceived in the spring of 2014, this one week camp takes place every year, during Spring Break, in Downtown Oakland. (2017 Camp registration will open in late 2016.)
We also have shorter STEAM Club Events – where female middle school students, high school students, and grown women network and build together.
Thanks to Debbie Davies, we have a wonderful video summarizing the activities from the most recent STEAM Camp, held in April 2015!
STEAM stands for Science, Tech, Engineering, Art, and Math. It allows us to integrate science and tech skills with artistic and creative projects so that kids are more engaged. We’ve found they also get a better understanding of the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of using tech in the real world. It’s time to move from STEM to STEAM!
At STEAM Girls Camp, young women participate in a variety of activities designed to allow them to socialize and build community with each other, all while completing hands-on activities, meeting inspirational women, and creating an online website (this one!) documenting their activities.
The camp has no official affiliation with the Oakland Unified School District.
STEAM Girls Camp is made possible by our generous supporters.
