About Chip Camp

Each summer, the Micron Foundation hosts Chip Camp. This free day camp is for students completing either the 7th or 8th grade and focuses on hands-on science activities related to the semiconductor industry. Students learn what engineers and scientists do every day.

Activities are lead by Micron engineers and professionals and include a visit to Micron’s headquarters. The application process begins around April 15 each year and a teacher signature is required. Applications will be accepted on a first-come basis.

Camp Activities Include

Western Idaho Regional Science Bowl (WIRSB)

The Western Idaho Regional Science Bowl (WIRSB), sponsored by the Micron Foundation, will be held on March 3, 2014, at Boise State University. The WIRSB is an official regional bowl for the National Science Bowl competition for high school students coordinated by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.

The WIRSB championship team receives an all-expenses paid trip to compete at the national event held in Washington, D.C. April 24-28, 2014. The national event includes several days of science activities, sightseeing, and competitions. Teams enjoy the entire science bowl experience and take home many prizes. There are cutting-edge science seminars and hands-on science activities.

Launched in 1991, the National Science Bowl (NSB) is a highly competitive science education and academic event among teams of high school and middle school students who compete in a fast-paced verbal forum to solve technical problems and answer questions in all branches of science and math. Each team is composed of four students, one alternate student, and a coach. Regional and national events encourage student involvement in math and science activities of importance to the Department of Energy and the Nation.

Approximately 26 teams are expected to compete in the 2014 WIRSB competition.

Careers for women in science math and technology are as varied as the women in those careers. Micron offers young women a sneak peek into the high-tech world that isn’t just for men.

Our Girls Going Tech (GGTech) program encourages 8th grade students to take advanced courses in math, science and technology, and improve their computer skills and technology usage in their pursuit of a technical career. During GGTech the girls rotate through different technical sessions with Micron female team members. The on-site event includes sessions introducing the girls to a variety of technical career options and some fun, hands-on learning activities.

We also support the Women in Technical Careers (WITC) program that delivers lunchtime panel presentations on careers for female students in grades 9-12.

If you are in the Boise, Idaho-area talk to your school counselor on how to participate in these activities. In the meantime, visit our Women in Technology page on Micron’s Student Site for more resources.

Do you ever wonder about the work engineers or scientists do every day?

Micron’s Careers in a High Tech World program offers a day-long experience for 11th and 12th graders interested in technical, scientific, or engineering careers. The program includes a general introduction to high tech careers and the opportunity to job shadow a Micron professional.

If you are in the Boise, Idaho area, talk to your school counselor about participating in these activities.

Micron's Student Site is a career-awareness resource designed especially for students as they prepare for a high-tech world. Students will find career awareness info, tips on interviewing for jobs, and more tools to help plan for the future.
