KGAN-TV broadcast a special feature on WiSE-Women in Science and Engineering (https://uiowa.edu/wise/) efforts, offering a week-long camp for more than a dozen 7th to 9th grade girls to learn more about potential careers.

Part of the Belin-Blank Center's Junior Scholars Institute (http://www2.education.uiowa.edu/belinblank/students/program.aspx?P=JSI), this is the camp's second year at the University of Iowa.

Students who are currently (academic year 2017-2018) in grades 6-8 may nominate themselves for the Junior Scholars Institute, a one-week residential summer academic program at the University of Iowa for Belin-Blank Center students. Students take a single advanced level course for the entire week. Each student selected will receive a $325 scholarship to cover a portion of the cost of the Institute.
