Devon sponsors SAGE, a week-long science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) camp designed to create interest, excitement and self-confidence in young women entering eighth grade. The camp empowers girls to think about themselves as future scientists, engineers, mathematicians and computer specialists, and encourages them to attend college and obtain better career opportunities.

Devon’s sponsorship helps campers attend interactive field trips during camp. Most recently, the students joined Devon employees to explore various departments within the company, learn about what geologists do and got hands-on experience with various types of rocks.

SAGE is offered at Southwestern Oklahoma State University and is one of 21 programs nationwide. It’s one of many programs by the American Association of University Women that strives to break through educational economic barriers so that all women may have equal opportunities.
