Berkeley Girls in Engineering

Inspiring the Next Generation of Female Engineers

The Berkeley Girls in Engineering program is a week-long, non-residential summer camp for San Francisco Bay Area girls currently in 5th, 6th, and 7th grades to explore different aspects of what it means to be an engineer in a fun, hands-on environment. For our 2016 camps, all girls from the San Francisco Bay Area will be eligible to apply. Girls will learn leadership skills such as goal setting and effective communication, and engage in activities that showcase different engineering disciplines. Participants will also design and create engineering projects throughout the week under the guidance of Berkeley faculty, staff, and students.
