Middle school girls will get an introduction to math, computing and robotics at the University of California, Davis this summer through the Girls’ Leadership Camp on Computing and Robotics.

Organized by the UC Davis Center for Integrated Computing and STEM Education (C-STEM Center), the camp will take place July 22-26. The fee is $195 and needs-based scholarships are available. Applications are due by June 28.

The camp is aimed at girls who will enter the seventh or eighth grade this fall. Participants will learn the basics of robotics, principles of engineering and C/C++ programming, as well as go on lab visits and field trips.

The camp will focus on confidence, teamwork, reasoning and problem solving skills, as well as changing the misconception that girls cannot be scientists and engineers. High school girls from the C-STEM Center’s Girls for Computing and Robotics Club will act as assistant coaches and mentors throughout the week.
