Summer Camp 2018 Recap
Middle school girls were spending two weeks at Brookhaven National Laboratory for Summer STEM Camp 2018! The first week, girls studied basic electric circuits and the science behind alternative sources of energy. Girls learned about the future of solar power energy and created their own solar powered homes. They also constructed mini windmills to power the houses! During the last week of Summer STEM Camp at Brookhaven National Laboratory, girls explored the fascinating world of biotechnology! Girls designed viruses with micropipettes, transformed E.Coli, and explored BNL’s greenhouse. Girls also heard from career panelists in the fields of STEM, banking, health and nutrition, as well as discussed the future of mechanical engineering.
Girls Inc of Long Island is incredibly grateful to the Pat Michels Memorial STEM Camp Scholarship through National Grid. Pat’s passion for youth development and girls empowerment lives on through this scholarship, allowing each girl to attend camp at no cost to them. Each girl also received a special journal to use throughout camp featuring Pat’s inspiring life story on the inside cover!
