The camp is designed to educate rising 8th and 9th grade girls on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) related degrees and career opportunities, all while having fun! The camp is free for all students.

Over the course of the camp, participants will:

  • Tour a college campus and museum
  • Tour the Bosch laboratories
  • Participate in hands-on computer science and cyber security activities
  • Meet with college admissions advisors
  • Learn interpersonal skills and techniques for choosing appropriate attire for all occasions
  • Meet women in STEM careers

During the three-day event, participants will stay on campus at the College of Charleston for ONE NIGHT ONLY, JULY 26 – 27. (NOTE: Campers are REQUIRED to stay overnight, no exceptions!). All chaperones will have completed a thorough background investigation.

Registration is open for the Girls Day Out this year. Sponsored by Naval Information Warfare Center Atlantic (NIWC Atlantic) via ONR, NUCOR Steel Berkeley, Bosch, Naval Health Clinic Charleston, North Charleston Police Department, College of Charleston and Trident Technical College via ACE, Girls’ Day Out (GDO) is designed to inspire, educate and attract girls to pursue STEM careers. GDO provides opportunities for participation in hands-on STEM activities from a diverse spectrum of STEM organizations. STEM professionals from businesses and organizations throughout the low country present interactive activities that bring excitement and STEM relevance to many of the tools that are used in their daily occupations. The professionals take the time to share with the girls how they can have meaningful careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Parents will also be afforded the opportunity to hear from colleges and universities about the requirements for their students to be accepted in these educational institutions.
