Girlstart’s camp provides unique experiences that develop a strong conceptual understanding of STEM subjects and increase participants’ interest in STEM activities and careers.

Girlstart cultivates a culture where risk is rewarded, curiosity is encouraged, and creativity is expected. As a result, Girlstart girls are connected, brave, and resilient. Girlstart makes girls more successful, and inspires them to take on the world’s greatest challenges.
