The Buckeye Women in Science, Engineering and Research summer camp for girls, an educational partnership of the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation, the Lubrizol Corporation and the College of Wooster, will take place June 7-12.

The annual camp features team-taught, hands-on science experiments and is a week-long residential experience open to girls who will complete seventh grade this academic year.

Dedicated to enhancing girls’ interest in science, research and engineering, B-WISER attendees will participate in labs featuring the fields of biology, chemistry, geology, physics, model robotics, Lego robotics and more during the day. And in the evening, noted scientists will share their enthusiasm in areas such as chemistry, word engineering, physics and even boomerangs.

The cost is $495 with scholarships available for students in the reduced-lunch program, and the deadline for applications is April 20. For more information visit www.BWISER.spaces.wooster.edu, email Mary Kilpatrick or call 330-263-2101.

B-WISER was founded in 1990 by Lois Cook and the late Ted Williams, a long-time member of the Wooster faculty who promoted careers in science and engineering for women and minorities and was nationally recognized for his efforts.
