  • In years past, SciGirls campers traveled to various area sites, engaging in hands-on activities that underscored important science principles. The girls had an opportunity to meet many scientists from the Mag Lab, PBS&J, and other firms and government agencies to learn more about their daily work. They also visited local laboratories and departments at Florida State University, observed an operation at the local animal shelter, collected fossils at a quarry, and participated in engineering activities with the PBS&J engineering firm.

    In July of 2012, SciGirls visited the Florida Center for Interactive Media. Listen to the story by WFSU-FM’s Tom Flanigan.
