Summer 2021 Camps Coming Soon

Want to host an interactive and engaging STEM summer camp at your institution? We make a great partner for universities and professional organization outreach programs, and for schools aiming to support girls in STEM. Contact us to discuss what it takes to bring Design Connect Create to you! 

Donors make it possible

Donations and grants from individuals, corporations, and family foundations make our work possible. We operate with a very small part-time staff, and due to many annual gifts-in-kind, we have minimal overhead. Your gifts and donations go directly towards helping us serve more and more girls each year. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible.
