Women in Science, Technology, Restoration, Engineering, Arts & Mathematics
As one of the premier providers of environmental education on the Palouse, PCEI is always looking for new and creative ways to get people of all ages exploring the natural world.
As such, we are thrilled to announce the return of STREAM Team—a week-long, STEM-inspired day camp. This program exposes young women to hands-on, technologically appropriate applications in the STREAM fields. Additionally, participants have a chance to engage and interact with local, women professionals.
Are you a girl entering 7th, 8th, or 9th grade in the fall who is:
- Excited about her future?
- Always looking for new adventures?
- Interested in meeting new people and making friends?
- Wanting to change the world?
If you answered yes to any of the above, then STREAM Team is for you!
