Students Study STEAM and Learn to Surf

By August 13, 2014Uncategorized

Partnering with Digital Media Academy eight EmpowHer Girls were given scholarships to attend a week long class at UC San Diego that allowed them to study science, technology, engineering, arts and math while also learning to surf for the first time. They were able to work with a film crew while they played in the water and then go back to class to edit the film. The week long camp also gave them the opportunity to meet UCSD female Engineering students like Jackie Tran who is majoring in Chemical Engineering. She shared some encouraging words with the girls during a round table discussion. Take a look at the video to see how much fun they had.
