Applied Career Exploration Camp (ACES) for girls focuses on sparking interest in high education through teamwork activities and hands on learning.

The camp is celebrating their 10th anniversary and more than 300 girls have attended the program. 

Some of the girls from the very first camps are now Raytheon engineers, scientists, and interns. One is even a co-coordinator of the camp now. 

They focus on the importance of math, science and careers in technical sciences and stress that there are no longer any careers that are for men only.
