Sally Ride Science Camps encourage girls' interests in science by giving them hands-on science learning and activities in an environment that is designed to be supportive, enriching, and — most importantly — fun!

Sally Ride Science has partnered with Education Unlimited to provide innovative science programs for girls entering grades 4 through 9. These unique, overnight camps provide girls an opportunity to explore science, technology, and engineering while having fun on a college campus.

Science Majors allow girls to choose an area of focus during some activities at camp. Each major will include several small labs and a significant culminating project.

In Summer 2014, we will offer the following majors at Stanford sessions:
  • 4th & 5th grade: Intro to Engineering and Intro to Marine Science
  • 6th & 7th grade: Astronomy and Marine Biology
  • 8th & 9th grade: Robotics and Advanced Marine Ecology


  • Enrichment Activities in the afternoons and evenings give girls an opportunity for informal science learning, as well as leadership and problem-solving training, through workshops, experiments, guest speakers, and recreational activities. Students will also attend a mid-program excursion to a local science venue.

    8th and 9th grade girls will participate in an advanced 7-day program that will allow them extra time to explore our unique majors and activities.

    A Sally Ride Science Camp graduate will have:
  • Completed the exclusive Sally Ride Science curriculum
  • Participated in lots of hands-on science learning and activities
  • Gained confidence and experience in a supportive girls-only environment
  • Learned from experienced and inspiring instructors
  • Made lots of new friends
  • Experienced a taste of college life
