WiSci Girls STEAM Camp in Peru Begins July 23

Washington, DC – Following the success of the first-ever WiSci (Women in Science) Girls STEAM Camp last year in Rwanda, this year’s WiSci Girls STEAM Camp will take place in Peru, July 23–August 7. The two-week program will help 100 girls—talented and driven high school students from Chile, Mexico, Peru, and the United States—learn science, technology, engineering, arts and design, and mathematics (STEAM) skills and encourage them to pursue careers in those fields.

As part of the Let Girls Learn initiative, the camp is a public-private partnership designed to expand STEAM education opportunities for adolescent girls. This year’s camp is also part of a broader U.S.-led initiative through the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum to enhance women’s participation and advancement in STEAM fields in the 21 APEC economies.
