Academic Summer Programs

STEM Girls Entrepreneur Camp at the Carnegie Science Center
This year we are very excited to announce that the Science Center is offering a brand new summer camp for girls ages 14-18! The STEM Girls Entrepreneur Camp will run July 1-3 and August 12-14. In this three-day intensive camp, girls will learn what it means to be an entrepreneur while discovering the real-world applications of science, technology, engineering, and math. See how a new idea is cultivated when you explore user-needs, create innovation designs, and learn how to market your start-up business. Utilize digital fabrication technologies in Carnegie Science Center’s FabLab, including 3D printing, vinyl cutting, and laser cutting to prototype your design.     Register Today:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              STEM Girls Entreprenuer Camp
