EX.I.T.E. Camps, developed 12 years ago through an IBM initiative, are now a worldwide event. The mission of EX.I.T.E. Camp is to empower middle school girls in the fields of math, science, and engineering. EX.I.T.E. Camp provides a safe and supported environment for hands-on learning as well as a place to meet new friends and create lasting memories.

In 2013, IBM and PACER Center collaborated for the 11th consecutive year to present a camp specifically for middle school girls with disabilities. Technology experts, scientists, and engineers from Accenture, IBM, Medtronic, Target and 3M gathered for five days in August and generously donated their talents, resources, and insight to inspire middle school girls with disabilities.

The 2013 EX.I.T.E. Camp was sponsored with generous donations from IBM, Xcel Energy, 3M, Medtronic, the Donaldson Company, Wells Fargo, and Staples. The 2014 EX.I.T.E. camp will bring similar experiences.

Please contact Meghan Kunz at 952-838-9000 or stc@pacer.org for more information or questions about this program.

 

Applications for the summer camp are available and will be accepted until spaces are filled.
