CanTEEN Girl has a lot to offer, but we know there are more things out there to do! Most opportunities will be girls only, but we will post some co-ed opportunities as well. Look out for “*co-ed” in the description. The STEMisphere also has a searchable site for great STEM programs for kids (Pre-K through Grade 12). Most camps and events are local to our Southwestern PA region, but we encourage you to go beyond! If you know of something that isn’t on our list, please tell us! Email Holly at FritzH@carnegiesciencecenter.org.

Girls Bridging Communities is a summer program that focuses on mentoring girls (3rd-5th grade) and building a strong foundation in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM!) We teach through different projects and by creating different things! This year their theme is wellness and will be combining anatomy with robotics! In the first week of the camp girls will learn about systems in the body and during the second week of the camp this knowledge will be applied to create a mini me robot! We will have various guest speakers throughout the program and all lunches will be provided! The camp will be fromJuly 21st to August 1st and all applications are first come first serve!
