G.A.M.E.S. - GIRLS ADVENTURES IN MATH, ENGINEERING AND SCIENCE
Structures (Girls entering 6th or 7th grade in Fall 2008) Structures Camp explores structural engineering, an exciting field of Civil engineering that focuses on the design and construction of buildings and bridges, aircraft and space structures, power plants and dams, and many other structures around us. Campers will work in small groups to design and build life-size boats out of cardboard! As a part of the challenge and fun, campers will race their boats against each other!Computer Science (Girls entering 7th or 8th grade in Fall 2008)Computer Science Camp gives young women the opportunity to harness the power of computer technology by exploring computer graphics, creating interactive animations, and launching a website showcasing their unique personalities. Campers will participate in stimulating computer labs, hands-on programming and other activities, and field trips to interact with some of the nation�s most fascinating computer projects on the University of Illinois campus.Bioengineering / Chemical Engineering (Girls entering 8th or 9th grade in Fall 2008)Bioengineering / Chemical Engineering Camp come learn how a little engineering and bioengineering are teamed up together to help cure diseases, provide alternative sources of energy, and make a real impact in developing countries. Young women will learn how tissue engineering is working to repair human muscles damaged by illnesses such as polio and how to harness alternative sources of energy and use it for constructive ends, as economically as possible, with the least damaging impact on our environment. As part of the challenge and fun, students will work in state of the art UIUC labs to establish and observe their own culture of muscle cells, to develop medicine to prevent disease, and to create friendly alternative sources of energy. Retreats & conferences accepted.
