The Visiola Foundation Ghana 2017 Accra STEM Camp for Girls is an exciting program designed to stimulate the interest of girls between the ages of 13 – 18 in the STEM fields. The camp will hold on January 27 – 29, 2017 at Mobile Web Ghana, North Legon. Participants will be exposed to Computer Science, Electronics, and Robotics. They will also be mentored and will be provided with the tools with which to succeed in their future careers. Their confidence levels will grow as they realize that they can become innovators who will make a difference in their communities. The aim of the program is to encourage more girls to pursue STEM careers by gaining their interest early and facilitating their success.

The camp will comprise engaging classroom coursework, practical team activities, fun games, and a group project. Students will learn basic concepts in computer programming, science, math, and engineering. They will additionally put that knowledge into practice by using technology creatively and building robots. At the end of the camp, the students will no longer view science and math as boring, but will instead realize that the concepts are interesting, exciting, and are relevant to their daily lives.

Admission to the Visiola Foundation Ghana’s STEM Fall Camp will be through a competitive selection process that identifies high-potential candidates who will be coached in their life-long pursuits. There is no participation fee for the camp.

Applications should be submitted to admin@visiolafoundation.org. Applications are accepted until January 20, 2017.
