TILLAMOOK COUNTY STEM CAMP

Tillamook County Summer STEM Camp

August 9 - 11, 2022 from 9 AM - 3 PM

Camp will be held at Tillamook Bay Community College

The Tillamook County Summer STEM Camp is an in-person, 3-day summer camp uniquely designed for girls entering the eighth grade in Fall 2022.

Girls and women continue to be underrepresented in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields. The Tillamook County Summer STEM Camp empowers girls to begin a successful path toward taking Advanced Placement courses in high school, pursuing a college degree, and ultimately entering the STEM workforce.

Campers take classes and workshops on the Tillamook Bay Community College (TBCC) campus and at Kilchis Point during the camp while they learn about math and science, perform cool experiments and hands-on activities, and interact with female STEM role models.

This camp opens up a world of possibilities in which girls see, first-hand, how exciting STEM careers can be and that they have what it takes to be in STEM.
