3rd Annual PharmCAMP to Engage Young Students in STEM

The goal of PharmCAMP is to engage primary and secondary school students in STEM via interactive and fun educational activities, expose students to cutting-edge technology, and introduce pharmacy and other health and science-related careers that are not widely known.

History

PharmCAMP first started in 2016. Since then, KGI has held this successful event for two consecutive years. Participants have primarily come from school districts with low average high school graduation rates, students from socioeconomic disadvantaged backgrounds, and minority groups typically underrepresented in STEM careers.
