Education Unlimited Sally Ride Science Camp



Conducted at five college campuses in California and one in Cambridge, MA, Sally Ride Science Camp enables girls to explore science, technology and engineering through such hands-on activities as the construction of rockets, robots and marine habitats. Each student chooses a science major that includes several small labs and a substantial culminating project. Four-day programs allow girls to choose between an introduction to marine science and an introduction to engineering; five- and seven-day sessions provide a choice between marine biology and astronomy; and the 10-day advanced program offers another two options: advanced marine science/marine ecology and robotics. Afternoon and evening enrichment activities take the form of workshops, experiments, guest speakers and recreational pursuits.
