    Hosted by the Institute for Genomic Biology on the University of Illinois campus, the camp will provide an opportunity for girls to study plant responses to climate change in the distant past and the coming century. Research groups of 5 to 10 campers led by a female graduate student will use million-dollar microscopes to image pollen, giving the campers first-hand experience in a research environment with female mentors. The camp is designed for girls who have completed 6th or 7th grade, or are entering 7th or 8th grade in the Fall 2015, and who have an interest in plants and the environment.
