EXploring Interests in Technology and Engineering Camp

The EXploring Interests in Technology and Engineering (EX.I.T.E.) summer camp is a fun, dynamic, educational program that allows middle school girls and other marginalized genders to gain hands-on experience in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math. Camp encourages future engagement with these subjects and helps them discover the range of possibilities that exist through amazing experiments, activities, and mentors. Campers learn how fun these subjects can be and many make friendships that last beyond camp. EX.I.T.E. Camp strives to be welcoming, inclusive, and accessible to all campers. 

In 2023, EX.I.T.E Camp will be held both in-person at PACER's office in Bloomington, MN and virtually via Zoom.
All event times are in Central Time Zone.
