Women in Science (WiSci)
Only 26% of STEM jobs are held by women in STEM fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Worldwide, women represent only 35% of all students enrolled in STEM-related fields of study. The WiSci Girls STEAM Camp aims to help bridge that gap through access to education, mentorship opportunities, and transformational leadership training.

Opportunity of a Lifetime
WiSci Girls’ STEAM Camps are an elite opportunity for secondary school girls from around the world to dive into STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Design, Mathematics) subjects alongside their peers and develop their leadership skills in a unique cross-cultural environment, with all expenses paid.
WiSci Camps are a safe, supportive, and girl-centered environment, bringing together 100 teen girls from three or more countries, to live and learn together for up to two weeks while exploring their interests in STEM. Camps include expert facilitators in STEM and girls’ leadership who provide a first-class classroom curriculum, mentorship opportunities, and skills training. Campers learn to value taking risks and to bounce back after failing, in a fun camp environment.
Since 2015, WiSci Camps have been made possible thanks to private-public partnerships between Girl Up and the U.S. Department of State’s Office of Global Partnerships, Intel, Google, Millennium Challenge Corporation, and many other incredible partners who are committed to closing the gender gap in STEAM.
