The MINES – Summer Camp for Young Women is an exciting, new collaborative effort between BP and Montana Tech meant to expose young women entering their sophomore and junior years in high school to the many exciting career opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields. The camp will be held July 27 through August 2. Applications are due on May 2, 2014. Complete information is available on the MINES website.
