Fermilab SAGE Camp

Science Accelerating Girls' Engagement in STEM

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

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

COVID-19 Protocols: Our priority is the health and well-being of the Fermilab community, including our visitors. Please do not visit if you feel unwell or are experiencing symptoms. An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place. Those visiting Fermilab do so at their own risk to such exposure. We recommend that you bring a face mask with you when visiting the lab. Face masks are not required outdoors and are only required indoors when Community Levels are High.

Goals for the camp:

  • To encourage college bound students with a passion for discovery and innovation to become a part of the STEM community.
  • To show that STEM fields offer a diverse set of opportunities: you can balance your interests in artistic expression, historic research, and creative writing with application of your logical thinking, analytic skills, and computational ability.

Learning outcomes for students:

  • To learn about the STEM community and experience what an everyday life of a scientist or engineer is like.
  • To see how STEM allows you to explore and balance many interests.
  • To meet women in STEM at various stages of their career as well as meet and connect with other students with similar interests to become a part of the SAGE Journey community.
