Girls Recognizing Engineering and Technology Retreat

Registration will open on February 1, 2019. 

G.R.E.A.T. stands for Girls Recognizing Engineering and Technology and it is a camping weekend retreat for girls entering grades 4 through 8 in August. It is designed to introduce science and engineering and acts as an extension of our summer science and engineering camp.

This is our 18th year offering the G.R.E.A.T. program, and through it, we hope to break down gender-biased engineering stereotypes and develop a female interest in engineering. It is a special opportunity for girls to come together and actively participate in design and technology-based projects.

G.R.E.A.T. 2019 will occur from August 9-11, 2019.

Please see below for details of the weekend program.
