Brave X-STEM students develop apps at SFCC

Visiting seventh, eighth and ninth grade girls from northern New Mexico were on campus on as part of the Brave X STEM day Camp from July 29 to August 3 to innovate, design and create. The camp culiminated with qualified apps being submitted to the <a href=””>Congressional App Challenge</a>.

STEM Santa Fe partnered with the Chicago-based educational organization, Brave Initiatives, to bring a one-of-a-kind summer day camp to Santa Fe. The camp was offered only in seven locations in the country. The camp offered a week-long, hands-on immersion into computer coding and app development.

STEM refers to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, areas of learning that are critical to nearly every vocation in today’s society.

After completion of their app development program, the girls celebrated with a cake provided by Wildflower International.

“STEM Santa Fe is a local non-profit organization that endeavors to see every child reap the benefits of STEM programs and education. The camp was a fantastic opportunity for young women to showcase and enhance their coding skills.” said Lina Germann, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of STEM Santa Fe.

STEM Santa Fe was fortunate to provide this day camp free of charge thanks to the generous support of LANL Foundation, Santa Fe Community College and Brave Initiatives.
