PROGRAM FULL - NO MORE APPLICATIONS BEING ACCEPTED. Hosted by the MSU Art, Computer Science and Engineering, and English Departments, Bulldog Bytes: Digital Divas is a 5-night residential computer camp for middle school girls designed to engage young women in digital design, writing and computer programming. The camp will encourage experimentation and play, aiming to foster girls' attitudes toward and aptitudes for computing. Participants will be introduced to a number of "digital divas" on the MSU campus and in industry as well as digital tools such as WordPress, photo and video editing software, and Scratch and Snap computer programming. Each girl will leave the camp with a digital portfolio that showcases the work that she has accomplished over the course of the week. Each participant will also take home the Finch robot that she has learned to program, enabling her to expand on her programming skills beyond the camp and share her knowledge with others. In addition to establishing a female-focused collaborative network, girls will leave the camp with the tools and savvy to use, create, and critique computing technologies. Scholarships are available.

The Bagley College of Engineering Summer Research Program, QUEST, provides opportunities for gifted and talented, rising high school seniors to spend three weeks working in world-class laboratories on the campus of Mississippi State University. The program will expose students to the excitement and opportunities of a career in engineering and life on the campus of one of the top engineering colleges. QUEST offers an innovative research opportunity designed to allow scholars a chance to increase their knowledge and understanding of engineering by participating in engineering research projects at Mississippi State University. Upon the participants’ completion of the program, scholars will have a better understanding of research and will be motivated to think about graduate school and careers in engineering. Special enrichment seminars will also be offered to provide participants with the knowledge and skills needed to be successful college students and researchers. Selection of participants is highly competitive and this unique program should not be thought of as a summer camp. Students are expected to work hard, make a contribution to the project, and participate in all seminars and other activities. Only those who exhibit the highest levels of maturity will be accepted.

“Wonderful, Outstanding, Noteworthy, & Determined, Engineering Ready Women” WONDER Women will be a residential summer camp for young women entering the 6th grade through young women entering the 8th grade. The young ladies will experience what it means to be a female in engineering. They will explore all 8 different engineering departments here at MSU, including mechanical, civil, chemical, biomedical, and electrical, computer science, industrial, and aerospace, through different activities. Each young lady will receive a copy of Through My Window by Sonia Ellis. It is a book allowing women to delve in to the world of artificial intelligence, engineering design, and engineering ethics. Throughout the camp, the young ladies will be doing activities directly related to the novel. During the student’s time with us, they will hear from a broad audience of women in engineering here at MSU and we will have round table discussions on how to be a successful woman in the field. This camp is to promote an encouraging environment, hopefully leading these women to choose a path in engineering.
