A five day information technology summer camp for girls, July 8th to 12th, 2019 from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM, offered at ODU through the IT department in the Strome College of Business. Lunch will be provided.
We accept girls who are currently in 6th, 7th, or 8th grade that are interested in IT. We want our campers to know there is a community in IT that will provide them encouragement and resources so they can pursue their dreams. The cost is $350 per camper. Need-based scholarships are available.
In small teams, campers take apart and reassemble a computer, connect their computers to form a network, and build an application, all while learning a lot about teamwork and leadership. On Wednesday, they will tour a local company to see how important these skills are in the real world.
IT students at ODU serve as counselors and role models to guide the campers through the learning process. Successful IT professionals serve as mentors throughout the week: they will eat lunch with the campers and talk about how they made it in the IT business.

A limited number of need-based scholarships are available.
Because you're a role model! Girls don't see many women in IT in movies or TV, so they may not realize how many successful women are already in the business. You'll give our campers a taste of real life success stories, and be someone they can aspire to be like, and someone who gives invaluable knowledge and insight as they choose their education path.
Have lunch! You'll meet your team of campers on Monday for lunch and talk about how you became successful in the IT field. Then, after the Girls have "Geeked Out" for a week, you'll meet them again for lunch Friday to see what your team has learned and accomplished, give them a big cheer, and talk about their future plans.
