B-WISER stands for buckeye women in science, engineering, and research.  This premier science camp serves middle school girls interested in STEM fields throughout the state of Ohio.  The residential program includes daily courses with a full laboratory experience to advance campers’ skills in a range of scientific disciplines.  Campers stay overnight in college dorms and utilize campus laboratory facilities.

B-WISER welcomes new participants currently in 7th or 8th grade to register for this immersive science experience.  Note this is a girl-centered program open to all students who identify as a girl/female in any way; please see our gender inclusivity policy for more information.  (NOTE: Prior B-WISER campers are encouraged to consider returning for the B-WISEST program exclusively for 16-17 year olds.)

Throughout the camp week, students take a full daily curriculum with classes in physics, chemistry, biology, geology, robot construction, and select advanced topics.  This cooperative learning experience boosts self-confidence and inspires girls to pursue their passions.

Girls also meet professional women in science who share their journeys in a wide range of disciplines.  And in the evenings, campers participate in hands-on programs covering a range of additional STEM topics.  Click for a sample daily schedule.

Founded in 1990, B-WISER has inspired and empowered thousands of young women to pursue science courses and STEM degrees.

Camp will take place from June 10th – 15th, 2024 on The College of Wooster campus in Wooster, Ohio.  B-WISER seeks to be an affordable option for every interested student.  And students who qualify for the free and reduced school meals program might qualify for scholarship funds to further reduce the cost.  Please click the enroll tab to view the pricing structure for the 2024 camp session and to register.
