You can help #SupportGirlsInSTEM! Since 2014, URJ 6 Points Sci-Tech Academy and Women for Reform Judaism (WRJ) have partnered in the work of changing the world, one female engineer, doctor, and rocket scientist at a time! In our inaugural summer, only 27 girls attended Sci-Tech, and now after our sixth summer, we have 113!

We finish the Torah portion Matot this Shabbat and the book of Numbers with it. It seems well-timed as Sci-Tech finishes its session and summer after this Shabbat as well.

That’s a lot of what camp is all about.
