Summer Camps


 

Data shows that lower self-esteem and fear of risk-taking is what holds girls back in subjects such as science and math, while also impacting their approach to life’s long-term challenges.  THE GIRL AND I is on a mission to empower girls with skills for life through S.T.E.A.M experiences that challenge, motivate and inspire them to grow the “I” in their individuality. Our program combines science with art to deliver unique experiences through which girls learn to become problem solvers, innovators, team players and leaders – while breaking down the barriers that limit them from discovering their true potential.    https://www.thegirlandi.com/
