Listen to what Parents and Campers are saying about Physics Wonder Girls Camp 2022
The camp was actually so much fun! We did really cool projects!
This camp was AMAZING!!! What a great job bringing physics to life & making it relevant & fun!
My daughter was very excited and talked very passionately about the labs they did at the camp. Also, she was glad that there were female peers she could talk to.
Dr. Ramos & his camp crew were AWESOME!!! Well organized & well run camp!!! I really appreciated it as a parent & my daughter really enjoyed all of the experiences!
She is now considering a major in physics when she applies for College.
