Extra attention for girls in Niagara University science, technology and engineering camps

LEWISTON – This summer, Niagara University’s college of Applied Learning will offer a pair of summer camps designed to introduce young people to the practical applications of science, technology, engineering and math.

The camps, which begin in July, will include a special camp for young women in grades 6 to 9.

The first session, open to all students in grades 3 to 8, will be held on July 20 to 23.

The young women’s camp will be held from July 27 to 30 and will focus on energy, and advanced manufacturing for both college preparation and career readiness. There will also be an emphasis on personal development, leadership and business etiquette.

Both camps are held from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day. The cost is $100 and includes materials, lunch and snacks. Transportation to Niagara University is not provided.

The program is part of a three-year grant sponsored by National Grid, which is designed to enhance STEM and advanced math. The program trains 15 Niagara Falls City School District teachers at the university and these teachers also plan and instruct the camps.
