STEM Camp 2024 for girls aged 13-16, to be held in July 1-5 at Frederick University

Frederick University organises the STEM Camp, for girls aged 13-16 years old, as part of its campaign for the participation of more girls and women in STEM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics).

The STEM Camp will take place on 1-5 July, at the University's campus in Nicosia. The STEM Camp is a series of experiential workshops which bring the girls into direct contact with STEM disciplines in the fields of Architecture and Architecture Engineering, Pharmacy, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Computer Science, Robotics and more. During the workshops, the girls will have the opportunity to explore, create, experiment, build, and solve problems with resourcefulness, analytical thought, and imagination.

Additionally, the girls will participate in interactive activities on career orientation, empowerment and self-development. The program also includes visits to relevant organisations and meetings/discussions with women who thrive in STEM fields and can be a source of inspiration.

Participation is FREE. Limited availability on a first-come, first-served basis. To register, please click here.

STEM CAMP is part of Frederick University's long-run campaign titled “To all women & girls: Join the Journey in Engineering, Science and Technology”, aiming to tackle the under-representation of women and girls in the fields of Engineering and Technology. The campaign runs within the University's commitment to support the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) focused on achieving a better future for all through reducing inequalities, prodiving access to quality education and offering equal opportunities to all. In the framework of the campaign, Frederick University offers scholarships of 50% to all girls that will choose to study any of the undergraduate programmes of the University’s School of Engineering. The campaign is under the auspices of the Commissioner for Gender Equality, ms Josie Christodoulou. 

STEM Camp is funded by the National Mechanism on Women's Rights.
