STEAM Workshops in University City for Girls

Courtesy of Sally Ride Science and PR Newswire:

Sally Ride ScienceSally Ride Science @ UC San Diego has received a grant to allow more middle school and high school girls to attend summer STEAM workshops.

Scholarships for the Junior Academy will go to girls selected from the program’s partners in the military, foster youth organizations, the San Diego Unified School District and other groups.

This summer’s Junior Academy runs from July 11-29. The 12 workshops range from Messy Discoveries to Music of Earthquakes and from Slimy Sea Creatures to Digital 3D Modeling.

Students take on roles such as robotics engineer, ocean explorer or computer scientist as they immerse themselves in hands-on projects. Top STEAM instructors lead the workshops, serving as both teachers and role models.

Workshops will be held at UC San Diego Extension’s University City complex at 6256 Greenwich Dr. Each workshop consists of one week of 3-hour sessions.

Morning and afternoon sessions are offered. The cost is $150 per workshop. For more information on the Junior Academy, visit
