Spark Summer Camp

She is a Pre-Medical student and will be applying to medical school this June with the hope of starting fall 2020. Outside of school, she participates in neurophysiology research on campus. It was while presenting this research at a state-wide conference that she learned of a STEM camp in La Crosse specifically for girls. She realized that while the Kenosha area has a need for such a program, no one was offering it.
