Girls in STEM: Muddy Waters STEMinist Camp June 26 – June 30, 2023

Registration through the Hendricks CareerTek website. At this time camp is full. Please contact CareerTek to be placed on a waiting list.

The Welty Environmental Center is happy to announce that we will be co-hosting a week-long aquatic science camp for middle and high school girls with Hendricks CareerTek this summer!

Muddy Waters STEMinist Camp will empower young women to investigate the many facets of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) through the lens of water science. Over the course of this week, campers will get their feet wet to collect chemistry and freshwater macroinvertebrate data to study causes and propose solutions to water quality issues. They will also engage with local female professionals in various types of water science and learn more about what it takes to pursue these careers.

Campers will go home with confidence in their science skills, knowing more about the quality and health of the Rock River, and have a better understanding of how they can make a difference in their world.

Participants must bring old shoes for use in the water, a change of clothes, a towel, and a plastic bag for wet and dirty items as we will be exploring wetlands!
