Labs and classrooms across campus were filled with 110 budding biologists, engineers, doctors, pharmacists, geneticists and anthropologists during the annual WEBS (Women Empowered By Science) summer camp hosted from July 24 – 28.
Wilkes faculty and students across the sciences, math, computer science and engineering disciplines joined forces to create a week of exciting and fun lab sessions with the goal of creating interest in STEM studies and inspiring young women to pursue careers in the sciences. Campers from more than 20 local schools spent the week immersed in innovative and fun projects and activities in biology, genetics, robotics, engineering, geology, nutrition, medicine, forensics, archeology and more.
Local media was drawn to the WEBS excitement too. Check it out:
