EcoLogik STEM Summer Day Camp for girls creates champions for nature, innovators in STEM, warriors for environmental stewardship, and leaders for their communities. Hear their stories in this video introduction to an extraordinary program.
The EcoLogik Project is a unique fusion of ecology, nature, and technology; EcoLogik connects the next generation of science stewards to the natural resources and science at Cabrillo National Monument. In collaboration with the San Diego Downtown Library’s Innovation Lab, this multidisciplinary approach fosters a learning platform making technology more accessible to students while inspiring them to choose careers in STEM fields. The goal of the EcoLogik Project is to provide education tools and context empowering the 21st century of park stewards in meaningful and relevant ways with science.
