Why Choose Boolean Girl

Friday at Boolean Girl Camps

On Fridays we celebrate our discoveries and achievements. We bring in lunch, show off our work, and are joined by one or more Boolean Girl ambassadors. Ambassadors are women working in STEM fields. They might be programmers, but we’ve also had civil engineers, electrical engineers, and even architects join our camps for the afternoon. Ambassadors share their experience in STEM, and they might lead a short project, talk about careers in STEM, and discuss the girls’ projects with them. Learn More

Before and after Care

Before and after care options are available. View details and make your selections during registration.
