AWE + SUM Girls Camp: June 16-19, 2014

Attend Westminster - Explore Science - Use Math 

The AWE+SUM Summer Girls Camp is just for girls entering the 8th grade this fall. Come spend four fun-filled days on the beautiful Westminster College campus and discover just how fun and cool math and science can be for you! In addition to the workshops, you'll be playing volleyball, taking hikes by the creek and enjoying meals in the student center. Several Westminster female math and science faculty and students will assist with the workshops. In the residence halls, each girl has her own small bedroom with 5 other girls in an apartment and several adult counselors on the floor. For further information, contact either Dr. Carolyn Connell (camp director 801-832-2402) or email Kali Wickens (assistant director) with AWE+SUM in the subject line.
