Bold Futures is a unique one-week summer program designed for up to 50 young
women entering 10th - 12th grade to build awareness of the business and
career opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).

Hands-On Learning

Explore the career and business opportunities in STEM through hands-on projects in robotics, technology, food science, business, and more!

Connect

Find yourself surrounded by a supportive network of women including other campers, camp advisors, and staff. Build friendships and connections that will benefit you throughout life.

Open New Doors

Off campus, campers will experience leading STEM-related businesses in Minnesota and get to know the women who lead them. You will also get an inside look at what life is like on a university campus.

In addition to engaging in hands-on, team oriented learning on the campus of Minnesota
State University, Mankato attendees will explore STEM through a variety of off-campus
learning experiences with leading corporate partners in Minnesota. They will also be
exposed to prominent female leaders in our region including the Minnesota Lynx, and
