Join Emerging Women Excelling in Leadership and STEM

Virtual App Camp 
Summer 2020

Due to COVID-19, we have adjusted our programming to be virtual.   The essence of our programming has not changed.  The first program upcoming in Mid May of 2020 is the Virtual Math Tutoring.  The Virtual Math Tutoring program is for that student that needs more assistance to keep on track to solidifying their math skills in grades 4th - 10th grade.  For the month of May, tutoring sessions are free!
The second program is our Virtual App Camp which starts in late June of 2020 through July where the students create an app that helps their peers or the community.  Then present their functional app to a group of judges who consist of our corporate sponsors and board of directors for a $100 gift card to Amazon.
