*STEM education researchers have devoted substantial effort toward developing, implementing, and assessing strategies that encourage the persistence of women, especially those from underrepresented groups in STEM fields. While our Soaring High in Engineering and GirlTREC camps are designed to integrate these proven pedagogical strategies that are especially aligned with the needs and interests of young women, we welcome any student to participate in camp activities.
