Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) Summer Camp for Disadvantaged Girls: Amman, Jordan
The SciGirls camp in Amman-Jordan, is an annual two-week summer program of interactive, hands-on immersion in Robotics, Basic Electrical & Electronics Circuits, Math & Chess, and Formula 1 in Schools. Soccer, Swimming and Mural/Canvas Painting enrich the overall SciGirls experience.
The ultimate objective is to empower participating girls to pursue their education and future careers in the fields of STEM. We believe that it is crucial for every girl to have the opportunity to explore a field of knowledge which tends to be male dominated, in this part of the world.
Our strategic goal is to make SciGirls an annual summer camp for disadvantaged girls from all over Jordan, and to expand the initiative to other countries in the Middle East.
