DreamQuest Videogame Design Camp has made it our mission to is to provide STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) opportunities for youth. We particularly want to reach out to girls since they have been historically under-represented in STEM classes and careers. We know that STEM camps, classes, and careers are a great way for kids to have fun, make friends, and learn valuable skills that can help them prepare for rewarding careers.
We want more girls enrolled in our camp, but we also want to support other local STEM camps, especially those just for girls. That’s why we’ve partnered with STEMgirls to seek out interested girls for our camps. STEMgirls provides hands-on programming for the under-served population of girls interested in STEM.
STEMgirls offers two camps this summer:
Dog Days Summer Camp
This camp is dedicated to Animal Science STEM with hands-on learning for girls ages 8 – 13. Therapy dogs and their awesome female trainers will be present at this mostly indoor summer camp. Other Animal Science experts will also participate.
Little Free Library/TSA Lab Camp
Participants in this camp is a TSA (take stuff apart) Lab Camp and will be the only STEMgirl camp to build a Little Free Library.
If you know a girl ages 8-13, please share the STEMgirls camp information and encourage her to attend. While you’re at it, encourage the girl you know and her friends to build her own video game in one of our fun sessions.
