We welcome applications from current 7th and 8th graders for the 2023 camp session, taking place June 18-23 on the College of Wooster camps. Note this is a girl-centered program open to all students who identify as a girl/female in any way.
Throughout the camp week, students take a full daily curriculum with classes in physics, chemistry, biology, geology, robotics, and engineering. This cooperative learning experience boosts self-confidence and inspires girls to pursue their passions.
Girls also meet professional women in science who share their journeys in a wide range of disciplines. And in the evenings, campers participate in hands-on programs on topics ranging from civil engineering to light and waves.
Founded in 1990, B-WISER has inspired and empowered thousands of girls to pursue science courses and STEM degrees. The program is an educational partnership of The College of Wooster and the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation.
