SOCIAL JUSTICE STEAM CAMP

The EmpowHer Social Justice STEAM Camp is a FREE three-week summer program for girls, ages 11-15 years-old in Los Angeles County, that explores the use of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) as a catalyst to address environmental justice issues impacting people and communities of color. Participants will explore the disproportional impact climate change has on marginalized communities and assess the resiliency of these communities through the lens of justice, equity, and inclusion. The project will be led by Marine Scientists, Dr. Dijanna Figueroa, and consists of hands-on learning experiences and youth-led student projects exploring ecosystem resilience at local marine habitats.
