Our Story

We started planning the camp at the end of 2021. We set out to identify 25 African-American girls ages 10-17 from the Tampa Bay Area that would benefit from our offerings. We had each participant fill out a questionnaire and submit a 30 second video about why they wanted to participate in The Science of Beauty STEM Camp.

Over the course of the camp, the girls heard from a range of guest speakers in various areas of the beauty industry with a focus on Body, Hair, Makeup, and Skin. The camp was sponsored by Neiman Marcus of Tampa, Chanel, and Slarutan Labs.
