Aim for the Stars Science and Math Camp

The staff of Aim for the Stars believes that the strength of our future rests on the confidence and creativity of the students we inspire. Children who are excited about science, math and technology become adults who are comfortable with this technological world. Our campers will shape a more technologically and scientifically prepared society from which will come the employers and employees of the future. In the short-term, Aim for the Stars Summer Science and Math Camp seeks to provide safe, fun and enriching informal science and math education to all children throughout the Omaha metropolitan area and beyond! We have several programs just for girls in areas such as robotics, forensics and chemistry. There are 47 camps available for 4th through ten graders. In 2008, we had a record number of girls attending and 1683 campers in all! Please join us!
