Rosie’s Girls’s February Vacation Camp

Girls* in Grades 6-8

$300 (Includes materials)

Generator is excited to offer Rosie’s Girls camp in partnership with Vermont Works for Women (VWW) this upcoming February Break! Rosie’s Girls is a STEM, trades, and career exploration program for middle school girls* entering grades 6-8. At Rosie’s Girls camps, participants are introduced to a career field that is non-traditional for their gender through hands-on learning in a supportive and empowering environment.

With winter school breaks upon us, now is the perfect time to enroll in Rosie’s Girls at Generator. Join us February 27 – March 3, 2023, for a full week of STEAM empowerment. Co-facilitated by VWW and Generator staff, Rosie’s Girls campers will put their design, tinker, and science skills to work inside our awesome facility in Burlington. From laser cutting to jewelry making, we have something for everyone to design and build their own creations. We’ll pair fun, hands-on projects with Rosie’s Girls signature “Power Skills” curriculum.
