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.
