GREEN BAY - The YWCA is teaming up with NEW Water to form a new camp for Green Bay girls.
"TechGYRLS" camp is focused on teaching girls in 3rd through 5th grade about careers in STEM fields. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
"There's a large gender gap -- with girls in particular, going into those STEM careers. So, this camp involves hands-on projects, guest speakers, and field trips that really promote that interest and career excitement," said TechGYRLS coordinator Amie Thiel.
More than 25 girls are taking part in this week's camp.
