This branch has sent 7th grade girls to Tech Trek Camp since the program began in 1998. Tech Trek is a week-long science and math camp at a college or university in California. This program was developed by California in response to AAUW research, “Why So Few?” asking why so few women were in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) occupations. At a current cost of $900 each, we appreciate donations of any size. Checks should be made out to AAUW, with Tech Trek in the memo line. The checks will be sent by the Tech Trek Chair to the designated camps for processing. An acknowledgement of the tax-deductible donation will be sent by national AAUW. Send donations to AAUW, P.O. Box 1473, Ridgecrest, CA 93556.
In the Summer of 2018, our Branch sent 9 girls to Tech Trek. Thank you to all donors!
