Research shows that, among girls, interest in science is most likely to wane during the middle school years. Our Physics Wonder Girls Camp provides three days of physics-based experiments, fun demonstrations, and contact with women scientists to plant and sustain middle-school girls' interest in science in general, and physics in particular.
