DANVILLE -- Students are learning girls can do anything boys can do. This week is the Amped Up Girls Camp. It's held at Danville Area Community College. The point is to teach 8th graders about engineering and manufacturing.

They'll learn how to write code, wire up a radio and all about 3D printing. It's a camp just for girls so boys don't hog all the fun. It runs until Friday. Later this week, they'll work with robots.
