STEMcoding Summer Camp

If you have an interest in physics (or science in general!) and a desire to learn computer coding, then take a look at the week-long STEMcoding Summer Camp at the University of Mount Union. You will have the opportunity to learn from and work with 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 have an opportunity to gain valuable experience and an understanding of some of STEM's high-demand career paths.

Girls (grades 8-12) can attend the STEMcoding Summer Camp.


The STEMcoding camp has been canceled for Summer 2020, due to Covid-19. Check back for information regarding STEMcoding Summer Camp 2021.


The camp is located at the University of Mount Union, 1972 Clark Ave., Alliance, OH 44601. The hours are from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. each day. The cost of the camp is $75, which includes breakfast, lunch, and a snack each day, as well as all summer camp activities and a t-shirt.  


SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

The STEMcoding Summer Camp held by the University of Mount Union is offering full scholarships to Alliance area high school and middle school girls interested in science, with a focus on physics and computer coding. Through the support of Alliance’s business incubator, INCUBOX, the University is able to offer full scholarship opportunities to the first 10 students residing in the Alliance area and/or attending Alliance or Marlington School districts.

For more information or to apply for a scholarship, contact Jenny Huth, director of camps and conferences at huthje@mountunion.edu. Scholarships will be award on a first-come, first-served basis to the first 10 applicants.

*Scholarship and registration deadline is Monday, July 13.

The STEMcoding Summer Camp is part of the STEMcoding Project, a collaboration between the University of Mount Union and The Ohio State University. The camp is supported by the American Institute of Physics Meggers Grant.
