We are a female team of former Corporate Engineers finishing up our 5th year as NYS certified, STEM teachers at Allendale Columbia School in Rochester.
In our efforts to encourage more young ladies to pursue the STEM disciplines, we are continuing to provide scholarships for some of the different robotics courses we teach each summer. For girls in the middle school grades (Fall 2017), we are offering scholarships for our VEX IQ Robotics, Navigation Engineering Camps. (Full course description and video provided on course link.)
While all interested students are required to apply for admission into this Summer STEM camp (as posted on the course webpage), we have a different application form specific to our girls' scholarship awards. A teacher recommendation is also required as part of this scholarship application process.
We have attached an INFORMATIONAL FLYER as well as our Summer 2017 SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION FORM and would appreciate it if you would kindly post and/or forward this information on to middle school girls interested in the STEM disciplines.
As an aside, we also select (female) Mechanical Engineering students, from several different universities, to receive college credit for interning with us throughout the summer months.
