Campers will ask scientific questions then design and conduct experiments to test their questions. Female scientists will offer mentorship throughout this process. The camp will culminate with students giving a scientific presentation about their research to their peers. Students will interact with local female scientists and research that is being done around Truckee area. They will learn current research methods that can be incorporated into their own research.Each day, in addition to their research, students will have opportunities to explore, swim, and kayak on Webber Lake.
