Forget campfires and tents, some Bay area girls are programming robots for their summer camp. Instructors say the robotics camp is designed to ignite girls' passion for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. They say a “girls only” camp is needed because boys and girls respond differently to engineering.

The event is hosted by Hillsborough Community College Brandon and FLATE. Organizers say by the end of the week the girls will have a solid introduction to programming and robotics, which could lead to many career opportunities.
