LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) The University of La Crosse hosted a camp for girls with an interest in science.

More than 80 girls in grades 6 through 8 participated in the 15th annual "Girls in Science Program." They had a chance to learn about DNA identification, how to make a light bulb glow without wires and even how to create their own tube of lip gloss.

The camp encourages experimentation, investigation, and involvement in the fields of science and math.

In addition to the activities, girls experienced life on a college campus with an overnight stay in a residence hall, campus meals and social activities with peer students, university student assistants and faculty.

There are other programs available through UWL this summer as well for boys and girls here:  http://www.uwlax.edu/Conted/youth/index.html
