DOTHAN - Troy University will present a summer camp in June at the Dothan Campus that aims to inspire local girls to excel in mathematics and science.

"Mathematics, the Queen of Sciences" will be held June 9-13 at the Dothan Campus for 27 girls in 7th-10th grade who have shown a strong interest in math and science. Participants were selected based on submitted essays, evaluation of recent grades and teacher recommendations.

In addition to enrichment activities designed to boost the girls' math knowledge, the camp will also give girls the chance to meet with and hear from women currently working in the fields of science, technology and math.

"This camp will create an atmosphere in which girls can dream big and plan for a brighter future," said Dr. Vijaya Gompa, professor of mathematics at the Dothan Campus and director for the camp. "The mission of this camp is to inspire young women to consider careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics."

Funding for the camp is provided by TROY and the Mathematical Association of America Tensor Foundation.
