Girls’ Adventures in Math, Engineering, and Science
Attention High School Math and Science Teachers:
I am writing to inform you of an exciting summer STEM opportunity for female students at your school!
Girls’ Adventures in Math, Engineering, and Science (GAMES) Camp is a week-long residential summer program for academically talented rising 9th – 12th grade girls. GAMES is being held on the Engineering campus at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign July 14 to 20, 2013.
The mission of GAMES is simple: To promote and retain interest in the STEM fields during the age when some girls start to stray away from math and science. Our camp is designed to expose intelligent young women to a chosen engineering discipline through demonstrations, classroom presentations, hands-on activities, field trips, and contacts with female faculty and other professional women in the field.This approach proves to be very successful in developing brilliant young minds and encouraging these students to pursue higher education in a STEM field.
Please consider announcing this opportunity to your students and recommending this camp to your students who are strong in math and/or science. You and your students can learn more about our camp track options, daily schedules, and application information at: http://go.illinois.edu/games.
Please note that due to generous corporate support, we are able to provide need-based financial aid packages to qualified applicants, and encourage all female students with strong math and/or science skills to apply.
If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact the Women in Engineering Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
