SAGE 2021 will be Virtual!

We will hold an engaging virtual camp in August, with a live event later in the year as lab openings allow.

Applications are closed for 2021. Please check back in early 2022 for SAGE Camp 2022 information.

Science Accelerating Girls' Engagement in STEM

SAGE is a free, one-week residential camp (virtual, as necessary) for public high school students from all backgrounds. The SAGE Mission is to engage curious and passionate young women, and empower them to explore a wide range of possibilities for their future.

Hosted by professional leaders who share their passion for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM), SAGE builds community, fosters innovation, and sets young women on a path to exciting careers, like those they’ll learn about at the Department of Energy’s National Laboratories

A SAGE Student is curious and perceptive, insightful and brave, empowered and resilient.

In conjunction with the Department of Energy National Laboratories, SAGE aims to broaden participation of women in STEM and foster creativity and innovation for continued scientific and technological leadership.

SAGE promotes diversity, equity, and inclusion and seeks to eliminate barriers that are faced based on gender, race, national origin, ethnicity, age, religion, sexual orientation, disability, handicap, or intelligence.

Consistent with Stanford University’s Online Accessibility Policy, SAGE Camp invites SAGE students who need special accommodations to contact us upon acceptance to the Camp.

During SAGE Camp, students will:

  • Gain exposure to the wide range of career possibilities that will make a difference in communities across the world
  • Experience how careers are enhanced by the exploration of a variety of interests in art, music, athletics, creative writing, travel, and many more while applying observation, interpretation, and analytic skills
  • Meet women at National Laboratories at various stages of their career, connect with STEM professionals and fellow students, find people with similar interests, and discover new interests
  • Learn about the SAGE community and the support and guidance that this community can provide to students as they explore their goals in education, work, and life
