Program Spotlight: Virtual Summer Camp Success!
Eureka! Summer Camp

In the picture to the right, Eureka! participants help Drexel U facilitator, Abdulaziz, edit coding syntax. Participants completed a course on Sphero mini robots (robot balls), and calibrated & coded using different languages! The week culminated with a Tiktok challenge, where participants coded their mini bots to make a skit, dance, or music video. 

Early Grade Literacy Camp

Although we couldn’t meet in person this year, our staff put together SUPER fun summer camp kits and delivered them to all our participants with a different theme each week! Themes included superheroes, under-the-sea and around-the-world! The picture to the right shows some of the goodies in our superhero summer camp kits!
Young Women in Construction Camp

Through our partnership with WorkReady and Mentoring Young Women in Construction (MyWIC) our participants spent the summer gaining hands-on experience in traditionally male-dominated fields including construction, engineering and architecture! In the picture to the right, participants present their PVC pipe and pipe fittings!
