Kansas State University have opened registration for their virtual summer camp. This year's camp will be open to the first 100 people who sign up; other interested participants will be placed on a waiting list. Registration closes on May 22. Link here:

These Summer Workshops are designed to be exploration events that expose and increase girls' interest in STEM disciplines. From June 1-5, K-State faculty, staff and students will lead live interactive sessions such as hands-on activity demonstrations, lab tours, career chats and more. KAWSE staff will also provide daily interactions, such as morning/afternoon check-ins and a few fun (optional) afternoon activities like trivia night. From June 6-12, pre-recorded camp materials will be accessible for students to browse at their own pace. We'll be using Canvas and Zoom as our platforms, both of which can be accessed using a computer, tablet or smart phone.

There are scholarships available to cover the cost of student registrations. This funding is made possible thanks to the support of our partners, so it is limited. However, we anticipate being able to cover the cost of all students who register. Use the following link to register for the event: Registration closes May 22, 2020.
