2. Participate in other STEM camps

Here are a few of the camps we recommend (click on the title of each camp for more information).

ASPIRE (Achieving in Science through Physics Instrumentation, Research, and Exploration) is a workshop for high school female students who will be entering 10th, 11th, or 12th grades in the fall. Participants will get their hands on physics equipment and software used by physicists and learn about physics research.

WiE GROW is a day-camp sponosored by OSU Women in Engineering and is for young women who are going in to 8th grade in the fall following the camp. WiE GROW is sponsored by Scotts Miracle-Grow company.

WiE CHEER is a three-day, non-residential summer program for young women who are going in to the 9th grade in the fall following the camp. This camp is sponsored by OSU Women in Engineering.

OSU Engineering Camps for High School Students The OSU Women in Engineering program offers five different programs for high school students interested in engineering.

Young Women's Summer Institute is a week long program sponsored by the Ohio Supercomputer Center for middle-school girls in Ohio. It is designed to promote computer, math, science, and engineering skills as well as provide hands-on experience.

Summer Institute is a two-week summer camp for Ohio's brightest high school freshmen and sophomores. Participants experience the dynamic fields of high performance computing and network firsthand.

4-H Science Camps 4-H offers summer camps is many areas including astronomy, animal science, robitics, rockets, and engineering.

3. Stay up-to-date

Attend a science talk. Read about science. Visit a science exhibit.

Science Sundays provides a forum to interest, engage, and inform the public about a wide range of current and emerging topics and issues in science that touch our everday lives.

OSU Women in Physics Blog called "A day in the life..." contains stories from aspiring scientists at OSU.
