Broadening Access to Science Education Camp Program

Fairfield University (CT)

The BASE (Broadening Access to Science Education) Camp Program at Fairfield University targets inner city high school girls enrolled at one of the Bridgeport's high schools. The program increases awareness of interest in the sciences, and encourages hands-on learning in a college setting in the field(s) of science.

Students come to campus for one week, reside in a dorm, and engage in hands-on, research-based experiences in the natural sciences and mathematics. Faculty lead projects with assistance from undergraduate students. Students have the opportunity to interact with undergraduates and participate in fun activities while experiencing dorm life.
