The Webb Schools break down the barriers that deter intelligent young women from studying science. The GIRLS Science Camp (GIRLS stands for gifted, intelligent, real-life scientists) is a week-long program where a select group of female high school science scholars share their love of science with 5th-6th grade campers by designing and teaching science lessons. It increased students’ confidence in understanding science and learning that science can be fun.

This article describes a summer camp where high school girls develop and teach a science camp to 5th and 6th grade girls. It is interesting because part of the article was written by one of the high school girls about her role and what she gained. Something that could be set up and done anywhere to encourage girls in science.
