STEMcoding Summer Camp at Mount Union

If you have an interest in science, math, engineering, technology, and learning to code, then take a look at the week-long STEMcoding Summer Camp at the University of Mount Union. Students will have the opportunity to learn from and work with the Mount Union faculty and students. Through a mix of computer programming and hands-on science and engineering challenges and activities, middle school and high school girls will gain valuable skills and technical experience, learn about majoring in STEM fields in college, get information about high-demand career paths in STEM fields, gain confidence, and make friends! See an example of what our 2019 Summer Camp students learned.

For questions about the summer camp, please email camp director and assistant professor of physics and astronomy, Dr. Richelle Teeling-Smith.

    The STEMcoding Summer Camp at Mount Union hopes to offer scholarship opportunities to local students based on need. More information will be posted soon.

  3. STEMcoding Education Ohio

    The STEMcoding Summer Camp at Mount Union is affiliated with STEMcoding Education Ohio. This non-profit organization started as the STEMcoding Project, a collaboration between the University of Mount Union and The Ohio State University. The organization has been formed to encourage more science and math teachers to integrate computer science and data science into their classrooms and to facilitate that work. The summer camp is financially supported by individual donors.
