EX.I.T.E. Camp (EXploring Interests in Technology and Engineering)


What is EX.I.T.E. Camp?

EX.I.T.E. Camp is celebrating 20 years this year and can’t wait to be back in person!

PACER’s EX.I.T.E. Camp empowers middle school girls and students of other marginalized genders with disabilities in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). EX.I.T.E. Camp provides a safe, inclusive, and supportive environment for fun, hands-on learning, as well as a place to meet new friends and create lasting memories.

Last year, PACER Center partnered with local industry professionals to produce EX.I.T.E. Camp. 3M, Accenture, Medtronic, Best Buy, and Wold Architecture & Engineers generously donated their talents, resources, and insights to inspire middle school girls and students of other marginalized genders as they learned about coding, project management, product design, material sciences, chemical science, engineering, architecture, and more. Each day of camp also featured guest speakers who shared their expertise in professional gaming, animal science, engineering, and patents with the campers.  PACER’s 2023 EX.I.T.E. Camp will bring a similar experience!

EX.I.T.E. Camp will offer an in-person camp and virtual experience to allow  out of state campers to continue to attend EX.I.T.E. Camp.
