Join us!

At GiE, we cultivate a fun, non-threatening environment that is designed to show how exciting engineering can be.

During camp, girls explore engineering, meet new friends and mentors, and develop their teamwork skills. GiE participants come from all over the Bay Area, with diverse interests and various experiences with engineering. While some girls already love engineering or science, for many this is their first time exploring engineering.

Join us to see how fun engineering can be!

Volunteer Applications Will Open in February 2018

Are you a high school girl looking for volunteer opportunities? If so, you can apply to be a volunteer for our Girls in Engineering camps. Please visit the Volunteer Page to apply and learn more about our program.

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 entering 6th, 7th, and 8th grades to explore different aspects of what it means to be an engineer in a fun, hands-on environment. 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.
