Math and science residential camp for middle-school girls

Middle school is a crucial time for girls as they view the world and the options that are before them. It is often the time when they make decisions about their interests and abilities in science and math.

Spectacles offers exciting activities designed to encourage middle-school girls to see science and math in new ways. The students are given a wide variety of opportunities including field trips, experiments and projects utilizing the Wesleyan College science laboratories and computer facilities. Also included are conversations with women who have discovered exciting careers in science and math-related fields, the chance to learn from faculty members in Wesleyan’s division of science and mathematics and computer information systems, and the chance to spend time with other middle-school girls interested in math and science.

How to apply
The application form must be completed and returned to Wesleyan College along with a $75 deposit by June 1. The deposit is non-refundable after July.

 

Along with the application form, a student needs to provide these additional items:

  • A letter of recommendation from a teacher, counselor, or principal
  • A one page essay from the student stating why she would like to attend camp
  • A photo

Cost
The cost of Spectacles is $640; this includes housing on the Wesleyan College campus, three meals a day, classes and field trips. Pay Online.

Spectacles is hosted by Wesleyan faculty. Students have the opportunity to explore math and science using the college’s science laboratories and state-of-the-art computer facilities. Students will be housed in the college’s residence halls and will eat in the Anderson Dining Hall. Facilities include an indoor swimming pool, gym and tennis courts.

Staff for the resident camps also include a camp director with a resident assistant for every ten students. A certified lifeguard will be on duty during any scheduled pool activities. Resident assistants will live in the residence halls with the students.

Testimonial from former Spectacles Camper

Nucleur fusion machine

When I was in 7th grade (over 10 years ago) I participated in the Spectacles summer program. After I returned back to my hometown in Orlando, FL I applied to an Engineering, Science and Technology magnet high school and excelled in the classroom. I ended up at the University of Florida and was able to thrive under the guidance of some great people in the College of Engineering and the Civil and Coastal Engineering Department. I truly believe Spectacles gave me the drive to reach back and work with the youth in my community in Gainesville as well as across the country through organizations like the National Society of Black Engineers and GatorTrax. I've gone on to volunteer at local high schools, plan a national convention for over 1000 students and chaperones, and was even inducted into the UF Hall of Fame-the highest leadership honor that can be received by a student at the university, none of which I believe would have been possible if I hadn't participated in Spectacles.

It was during your program that I gained the desire to obtain a PhD in engineering. We went on a field trip to Oak Ridge National Laboratory and had the opportunity to go inside a nuclear reactor. That moment changed my life. I am now a PhD student at the University of Florida and I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for inspiring me to pursue my goals in the STEM fields. Your program made a lasting impact on my life, and I am forever grateful.

Regards,
Ms. Jeremy Magruder
