The team will deliver lots of hands-on experiences to include essential skills and computational learning, all based on Design Thinking methodology.
Intel Foundation were one of the founding partners to create WiSci in 2015 and have served over 500 high school girls in Rwanda, Peru, Malawi, Namibia, the country of Georgia, and a successful pilot for middle school girls in Arizona. The positive impact from prior camps have made it possible for Intel Foundation/Girl Up to offer this exciting opportunity in Oregon!
