In addition, fifteen 9th grade girls will be selected from the southwest Virginia region to attend this year’s SWCC STEM Quest Summer Camp. A counselor at the camp will be assigned to each student to provide mentoring and guidance throughout the camp. Students need to apply now for this summer adventure, as the number of slots are so limited.
During the camp all participants will have the opportunity to experience new state-of-the-art labs and technology with hands on demonstrations. Some of these demonstrations will include: forensics lab/fingerprinting, weapons simulator, emergency medical services simulator, virtual welder, nursing simulators, robots, virtual cadaver lab, computer aided design, and so much more!
And, that’s not all! Participants will also enjoy hiking a trail using geographic information systems technology and GPS, as well as participate in a demonstration of a virtual manufacturing facility.
Participants will get a special treat when SWCC President Mark Estepp and his wife Trish will host a cookout for the class at noon on Friday, June 19 at the SWCC picnic shelters.
