GRANTS PASS, Ore. — 100 middle schoolers haven taken over the Rogue Community College for a STEM summer camp. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math.
"The girls are learning about 3-D printing, 360-degree cameras and virtual reality," said Cathy Kemper-Pelle, President of Rogue Community College. "The girls are having a blast and really enjoying it."
"Girls typically are not exposed to STEM careers as often as boys are," Kemper-Pelle said.
One of the campers NewsWatch 12 spoke with said the boys at the Boys and Girls club are jealous.
"They were like, 'You got to do that? Where?' And I'm like, I can't tell you," the camper said.
Kemper-Pelle knows that it's important for girls to get this opportunity that they might not get elsewhere.
The camp is in its second week this week. Next week will be the last week.
Rogue Community College and the Boys and Girls Club partnered with Verizon to make this camp happen.
