Female students entering grades 7 through 9 in the district next fall who have a strong interest in science and technology can now register for the Summer 2014 Engineering Institute for Young Women. The weeklong camp is being offered for a third year by the Niskayuna Central School District in partnership with GE Global Research.
The Engineering Institute for Young Women III will take place the week of July 7-11, 2014. The cost is $250 per student, and registration is first come, first served. Registration will be open until May 2, or when all of the 65 openings are filled. Spots could go quickly, so parents are encouraged to sign students up as soon as possible.
Registration is a two-step process. Please complete both steps as soon as possible to reserve a spot for your child:
Student registration is not confirmed until payment is received.
The camp runs from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. each day. Families will provide transportation to and from Niskayuna High School, as well as lunch.
The camp offers students a week of exploration and discovery into the "STEAM" fields of science, technology, engineering, art, and math. Last year's students visited with area scientists at GE Global Research, heard from leading female researchers and professors about college and career opportunities in STEAM fields, and designed, built, and programmed robots to perform gymnastic routines.
