Fostering Curiosity

At STEMpowered, we aim to foster the natural scientific and mathematical curiosity of young girls in Detroit. Women are unequally represented in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) fields and we know this is not due to unequal abilities. Our campers, and all girls, deserve encouragement, opportunity and the empowering belief that their potential has no limit.

TECHNOLOGY

ENGINEERING

MATH

All camper tuition is 100% covered by scholarships from local businesses and private donations, plus transportation and food are provided throughout the week.

A little About us

We hosted our first summer day camp in 2014 and have been able to welcome students back each year for more fun! During our weeklong sessions, campers have the opportunity to explore their own interests in an interactive and exciting environment. Daily activities include local field trips, demonstrations, guest speakers who highlight the wide range of women and careers in STEM fields, plus crafts, games and summer camp fun. During the week, pairs of students conduct their own experiments with the guidance of a personal mentor and present their findings on the final day of camp.
