TWU holds ACES camp sessions for sixth to ninth-grade girls in June and July


DENTON — Texas Woman’s University’s Science and Mathematics Center for Women will host its 18th annual Access to Careers in the Sciences (ACES) Camps for sixth to ninth-grade girls in June and July.

Camp I will be June 19-July 1 for girls finishing the eighth or ninth grade. Camp II will be July 17-29 for girls finishing the sixth or seventh grade. Participants will attend classes on various math and science disciplines and be introduced to women who have already established themselves in careers in
the sciences or mathematics.

The cost for each camp is $925, which includes room and board at Mary Gibbs Jones residence hall for the duration for the camp, all laboratory fees and all materials used.Forty girls from throughout Texas are expected to participate in each camp session and limited space is available for the Camp II session in July. For
more information and registration requirements, call 940-898-2769 or 1-800-860-ACES or visit www.twu.edu/smcw/.

Science and Mathematics Center Director and TWU Senior Lecturer Cathy Banks started the ACES camp 18 years ago.

“I wanted an avenue to encourage girls at the junior-high-school level to become interested in math and science and eventually pursue degrees and careers in these disciplines,” Banks said.

The camp has had 937 participants since it began in the summer of 1988.
