Our Mission

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 creative lasting memories.

In 2021, for the 18th consecutive 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 meteorology, animal science, engineering, and patents with the campers.  PACER’s 2022 EX.I.T.E. Camp will bring a similar experience!
