Class was in session at Ohio Northern University's School of Engendering, but not for college students. Camp GEMS was held for 7th and 8th grade girls interested in science, math, and engineering. The 4 day camp is designed to develop interest, excitement and self-confidence for those participating.
Girls learn how they can tie math, science, and engineering into their daily lives. For example, how hair dryers work and how they're made and how quilting can help when learning math.
This camp helps get young women interested in a male dominated career field.
These young women can also talk to ONU professors and students about pursuing math, science, or engineering in college.
