iSmart Girls - Discovery Day Camp

Millikin University Center for Entrepreneurship presents, with generous support by the PPG Foundation.


The ismartgirls Discovery Camp is an intensive, hands-on learning camp led by (mostly female) Millikin students, as role models and mentors, and by successful business professionals. Focusing on subject areas of science, math, art, and technology, ismartgirls not only teaches its young learners through hands-on labs but also impacts other important life lessons including the accessibility of careers for females in science, math, art, and technology and the empowering message that girls and women can "create" and "own" their careers and professional futures. ismartgirls also practice 21-century skills - collaboration, communication, and critical thinking.
