Teen Girls Engineering/Inventing Camp

Greetings, friends! I am sending this to you in the hopes you may know some interested girls of the right age or be able to email it to someone who does. Please pass it on!

The Girl Scouts run a great camp called Design and Discover. Experience the world of design and invention! Identify a real world problem and design a solution with the tools provided in this camp. This inquiry-based, hands-on curriculum is designed to appeal to girls whether or not they “like” science. Field trips to local design firms and cool modern manufacturing sites to meet female engineers and designers are a part of the experience!
