The third-annual Physics Wonder Girls Day Camp will be held at Indiana Wesleyan University on June 24-26 for incoming eighth and ninth grade girls who are recommended by their science teachers. The free three-day camp promotes learning through hands-on physics experiments, projects, physics-based games, career talks and science tours.
Participants will work in groups to complete projects, including building a remote-controlled submersible from scratch and testing it in IWU’s swimming pool. They will perform experiments that will involve liquid nitrogen ice cream, hovercraft rides, levitating plates and an eggdrop competition. The camp will culminate in a final physics show staged by the participants for family and friends on June 26.
The camp is completely funded by the National Science Foundation and is nationally recognized through the Society of Physics Students and the Connectory, which is the most comprehensive web portal for science, technology, engineering and math-related offerings.
Applications are due by May 29. Download the application.
