The PUF Girls' Hacker Academy strives for greater awareness among women in technology by complimenting San Francisco Bay Area middle school girls’ education with programming basics using and Scratch, GIS, Web Development, and Python, networking skills, valuable mentorship opportunities under IT and STEM mentors and key note speakers, and fieldtrips to local museums or tech companies.
No programming experience or prior computer science knowledge is necessary to participate! The girls will form a strong community and enduring friendships! Students will also have the opportunity to receive prizes! Program yoUr Future aspires to increase the number of women and minorities in formerly male-dominated technology industries.

HobbiesINTERESTED IN SPENDING THE SUMMER AT UC BERKELEY,
LEARNING A VARIETY OF STEM-RELATED TOPICS?
Program yoUr Future Camps introduce and prepare participants for the wide variety of high paying and exciting jobs in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics! Our programs significantly enhance the education of middle school and high school participants who aspire to pursue careers in science, engineering and entrepreneurship, especially those from minority backgrounds and other underrepresented segments of the population.
IMAGINE A SUMMER CAMP THAT YOU'LL LOVE. PUF Students find themselves engrossed in engineering design challenges, science projects, and hands-on activities that make them think and express their ideas with complete freedom!
Our curriculum team spends thousands of hours developing creative approaches to science, math, physics, and engineering concepts. We interview several applicants to find the most talented counselors and instructors. We expose our students to an innovation process directly taught by UC Berkeley, Stanford University, and industry personnel.
The result is a summer camp experience that students love and cherish--a camp that has a deep impact upon them! Navigate on our site to learn more about these experiences and find the details that you're looking for to sign up for the camps!
