Volunteers can register for one day of camp; full week attendance is not required.

The GSHCC STEM Center + MakerSpace is a place where girls can incorporate scientific discovery in their lives. Through a variety of cooperative learning opportunities and hands-on experimentation, girls will hone key STEM-related skills such as creativity, innovation, critical thinking and problem solving all while having fun and gaining confidence.
