SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The Girls Get It STEM Camp at Syracuse University wrapped up its final day on Friday.
The camp invited 32 middle school girls from the Syracuse City School District to engage in projects based around science, technology, engineering and math. It's a weeklong overnight camp and each day, the girls learn a different aspect of the STEM disciplines.
The camp's purpose is not only to educate the young girls, but also to prove to them that they can be successful in any field they choose.
"Well, unfortunately, a lot of girls think they can't do science or that they're not good at science and a lot of people think that science is not applicable or, you know, not something that the everyday person needs to know about. So we bring them in, so we can expose them to science and technology and engineering as well," camp director Aisha Morris said.
This marks the second year that the camp has been in existence.
