STEM Program Opportunity

Gila Crossing Families,

We would like to make you aware of a year-long STEM opportunity for girls in grades 6-8 (2021-2022 school year), sponsored by South Mountain Community College and Verizon.

While Gila Crossing is not directly involved with the program, we do think this is a unique opportunity for girls to get valuable exposure to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).

If you would like to register your 6th to 8th grader, you can visit

or, you can also reach out to Lorrie Shelton at 602-243-8166 / 

This summer camp portion starts July 6 and runs through July 23, from 8:00am to 3:00pm each day day they are in session.

After the summer camp, there will be one Saturday Session per month from 9:00am to 12:00pm.
