MCWT Camp Infinity
Our 2013 summer camps at both Lawrence Technological University and University of Detroit Mercy are now full. LTU Camp Acceptance emails were sent out in early April. UDM Camp Acceptance emails will be sent out in mid-May. Girls whose applications came in after Camp Infinity was full will receive an email to that effect. The $30 application fee will be returned if you were not accepted.
Camp Infinity is a weeklong summer technology camp for girls aged 9 to 13 years old that introduces technology as fun and fulfilling and inspires the pursuit of technology education. MCWT Foundation created it to address the primary reasons girls lose interest in technology: confidence, social relevance, and social (peer) acceptance. The camp:
Now in its 10th year, Camp Infinity helps spark girls’ interest in math and science, which tends to decrease during middle-school years. It separates the girls into two groups of 20 by grade to better cater to their technological experience. The fourth and fifth grade girls focus on website, app and video game design while the sixth and seventh graders focus on robotics and web and app design.
During lunch, professionals from leading area companies meet with the girls and encourage them to continue learning about technology. Access to role models like these reinforces the rewards and opportunities a career in technology can bring.
Applications for 2014 Camp Infinity will be posted in March, 2014.
