The Curriculum

Sponsored by Duke Energy since 1997, this one-week camp for rising seventh and eighth-grade girls features noncredit mini-courses in engineering, science and mathematics taught by Clemson professors. Project WISE classes give young women experience and hands-on learning in STEM fields. They will learn how science and engineering affect them personally while also discovering how exciting and rewarding careers in these fields can be. The courses give the students the opportunity to experience practical applications of math and science through collaborative and hands-on learning methods.

Fun Activities

Project WISE is not all work! Our counselors and staff ensure that campers have a great time participating in fun activities as well. Past groups have participated in movie nights, talent shows, arts and crafts sessions, outdoor games, and much more. Through both the mini-courses and extracurricular activities, we promote a strong sense of self-esteem in our campers to help them grow personally and as part of a team. Campers will stay busy and involved learning about STEM and building long lasting friendships.
