About GIRL Camp

girls in robotics leadership campersSolano County Office of Education, in partnership with UC Davis C-STEM (Computing-Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics), hosts free C-STEM Girls in Robotics Leadership Camps (GIRL) in Solano County. The camps have expanded across the county thanks to support from Genentech, Valero Benicia Refinery, Soroptimist International Central Solano chapter, the Center for Freedom and Flight, Benicia Makerspace, Solano Community College and private donors. 
 
Numerous studies and surveys have noted that the C-STEM fields have remained predominantly male with low participation among women. Our GIRL camps were focused on motivating young women to learn computing and STEM concepts through a fun and exciting robotics curriculum. GIRL campers learn robotics, develop code, create films, and explore college and career paths with female mentors from within C-STEM fields. 
 
C-STEM GIRL Camp focus on motivating young women in middle school entering the 6th, 7th and 8th grade to learn computing and STEM concepts through a fun and exciting robotics based curriculum.
 
SCOE hopes this leadership camp will enable girls to serve as leaders and inspire other girls to gain interest in science and technology through creating and joining robotics clubs in their schools.
