Organizers of Girls Gathering for Computer Science -- a girls-only camp held at Pacific University in Washington state -- want to inspire girls to pursue careers in the often male-dominated fields of science, technology, engineering and math. Campers take field trips where they meet women who work in STEM. "When they work with female staff and meet women in the field, they can imagine themselves in those positions," said Shereen Khoja, camp director and Pacific University professor.
