TEC Camp at Georgia Tech is hands-on science just for girls

Girls who love science can sometimes feel pushed aside by the boys who dominate the field, both in school and in the professional world. But that’s not the case at TEC Camp, a one-week summer experience at Georgia Tech for middle-school girls only.

Girls will take classes in robotics, chemical engineering, web design and more, taught by Georgia Tech faculty and specialists. TEC campers also meet professional women who work in science and technology careers.

TEC Camp will be held June 18-22, 2012, on the Georgia Tech campus. The application process is competitive, with only 40 girls to be chosen based on their academic records and a personal essay.

Applications are available now. The camp’s web page doesn’t give a deadline to apply, but says applicant decisions will be made by April 20, so I’m thinking it’s best to get your application in by early April.
