Start Your SAGE Journey

Participating in a SAGE Camp is the starting point of your SAGE Journey.

You become part of the SAGE Community, a support network of students and professionals that provide additional opportunities after camp, such as internships, jobs, and leadership development programs.

SAGE Card Background


SAGE (Science Accelerating Girls' Engagement) is a one-week summer camp for public high school students (age 14-17) hosted by scientists and engineers to share what life is like in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) professions.

This program aims to foster innovation, grow the STEM community, and engage intelligent, creative, and passionate young women in the everyday life of scientists and engineers. Throughout the week, students will participate in job shadowing, hands-on projects, professional development, networking activities and more!
