Troy University offering math camp for girls at the Dothan Campus | Events
Troy University will present a summer camp in June at the Dothan Campus that aims to inspire local middle school girls to excel in mathematics and science.
“Mathematics, the Queen of Sciences” will be held June 4-8 at the Dothan Campus for girls in 7th-9th grade. Admission is free and open to any girls with a strong interest in math or science, however the camp is limited to only 20 participants. Girls will be selected based on their submitted essays, evaluation of recent grades and teacher recommendations.
This is a day camp, so parents are responsible for dropping their children off and picking them up each day.
For more information about how to apply contact Dr. Vijaya Gompa, chair of the math department at the TROY Dothan Campus, at (334) 983-6556 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for applications is May 17.
In addition to enrichment activities designed to boost the girls’ math knowledge, the camp will also give girls the chance to meet with and hear from women currently working in the fields of science, technology and math, including presenters from the Marshall Space Flight Center and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
“This camp will create an atmosphere in which girls can dream big and plan for a brighter future,” Dr. Gompa said. “The focus will be on exposing students to the basics of science and mathematics that lead to careers in the areas science, technology, engineering and math.”
Funding for the camp is provided by TROY and the Mathematical Association of America Tensor Foundation.
