TechGYRLS 2018 Summer Camp

YWCA Lancaster will offer four, two-week TechGYRLS summer camp sessions focusing on many different hands-on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) related projects. Beginning June 18, camp sessions will take place at Thaddeus Stevens School of Technology and at YWCA, both located in Lancaster. Girls will learn new skills through hands-on activities, go on exciting STEM field trips and more. 

 

TechGYRLS is a hallmark program of YWCA Lancaster, focused on empowering girls ages 9 to 14 to pursue STEM activities and careers. Women, and particularly women of color, are under-represented in high-paying jobs in the science, technology, engineering and math fields. TechGYRLS boosts girls’ interest in these fields through after-school programs at elementary and middle schools across Lancaster County, and during the summer camp sessions. 

 

Cost: $300. A sliding fee scale, based on income, is available. For more information, contact Brittany Leffler by phone 717-393-1735, ext. 260, or email BLeffler@YWCALancaster.org, or visit YWCALancaster.org/programs/empowerment/techgyrls/.
