Our low-cost one-day camps introduce middle school students to explore a technical topic of focus with hands-on activities and an introduction to related technical careers. We can hold separate girls only or co-ed (for all genders and nonconforming) workshops at designated locations throughout the school year. We can also hold special on-site workshops for community groups and schools by request. Lunch and/or snacks are provided.
