We need women in science and philosophy!
Camp Quest isn’t going to solve the problem but it is going to show girls with interests in these fields that there is a community of others who are just as passionate as they are. When we tell the campers off for staying up past their bed time, they’re pretty often arguing about AI or Effective Altruism. Camp Quest will expose girls to the kinds of risks and challenges that will serve them well when they’re fighting to reach the top or simply receive recognition. Quite simply, we won’t change the world if we don’t change the culture. After a decade of seeing young women leave camp to join STEM courses at top universities, we think we can play a role in this change.
