WiSci Girls STEAM Camp

Internationally, there is a strong gender imbalance in the STEM fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The WiSci Camp aims to help bridge that gap through access to education, mentorship opportunities and leadership training.

2017 Malawi

Girl Up is proud to partner with the Secretary’s Office of Global Partnerships, with the support of the Secretary’s Office of Global Women’s Issues, to announce the third annual Women in Science (WiSci) Girls STEAM Camp (STEAM= Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Design, and Mathematics), to be held in Malawi during the summer of 2017.

A public-private partnership, WiSci Malawi will bring together 100 high school girls from the African continent and the United States to work together to enhance their STEAM skills, empower them to develop their leadership potential, and build camaraderie and networks that will propel them to new opportunities in STEAM fields.  The theme of WiSci 2017 is using technology to create a safer, more secure world, with a focus on preventing gender-based violence.

WiSci is made possible by the valuable contributions from partners including the UN Foundation’s Girl Up campaign, Intel Corporation, and Google.
