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.

Historically the camp is limited to girls just finishing the seventh grade; however, because the program was cancelled for two years due to COVID, we want to extend this opportunity and will again welcome applications from current 7th and 8th graders for the 2023 camp session.  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.

Throughout the camp week, students take a full daily curriculum with classes in physics, chemistry, biology, geology, and engineering.  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 on topics ranging from civil engineering to light and waves.  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 June 18-23, 2023 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 price.  Please click the apply tab to view the pricing structure for the 2023 camp session.
