Science: It's a Girl Thing



The Institute for the Development and Enrichment of Advanced Learners (IDEAL) at Texas Tech University opens the eyes of thousands of students to the endless adventures in science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM). Our mission is to provide distinctive and unique outreach programs that promote academic excellence in STEAM and diversity. 


Science: It’s A Girl Thing 

Session I: June 11th-15th, 2017 (Grades 5 – 6)

Session II: June 18th-22th, 2017 (Grades 7 – 12)

SIGT provides girls with strong role models and dispel myths and misconceptions about careers in STEM. Campers experience university life, hands-on classes and recreational activities.  In the past we have offered classes ranging from Robotics to Microbiology. This approach exposes girls to diverse topics in science and sparks interests that could lead to a lifelong career. Students write a short biography on their interests and are assigned to two STEM courses based on what information they share.

The J. F Maddox Foundation graciously provides full scholarships to selected Hobbs Municipal Schools students.
