Twenty middle-school girls learned how to design their own entertainment through digital technology during a recent two-week summer day camp at the University of Louisville.
The Digital Media Academy’s objective is to interest the rising 6th graders in STEM fields while also empowering the campers.
“Our goal with them at the beginning of camp is always building confidence,” said Michelle Day, a UofL grad student, adding that middle school is typically when girls start being “pushed away” from STEM fields.
This was the third year for the academy. More information is available here:
