In this Section

We regret that because of an unforeseen circumstance, a decision has been made to permanently close the Science, Technology, Engineering Preview Summer (STEPs) summer camp for girls.  A challenge has been filed with the federal Office of Civil Rights due to the single-sex nature of the camp, leading to the decision.

What was STEPS for Girls?

Science, Technology and Engineering Preview Summer (STEPS) at UW-Stout was a five-day residential summer camp for girls between their 6th and 7th grades in school. STEPS for Girls aimed to build confidence in young women by structuring their participation in STEM-related activities. The hands-on activities and the high-energy environment were designed to inspire both confidence and enthusiasm.
