Tech Trek is a science and math camp designed to develop interest, excitement, and self-confidence in young women who will enter eighth grade in the fall. It features hands-on activities in math, science, and related fields. All sleeping, eating, instructional, and recreational facilities are located on a university campus where camps are held.
Tech Trek is a project of AAUW California.
Since 1998 AAUW Tech Trek camps have been designed to help girls continue their interests in science, math, engineering & technology (STEM) exploration and learning. Studies have shown that girls’ interests can be sustained if they are exposed to the careers available to women in science today. Tech Trek provides some of that exposure.
Each year Redding AAUW provides scholarships for local girls to attend this camp designed for girls to find their passion in high-tech careers.
What is it like to write code for iPhone Apps and work for companies like Google, Apple and Facebook? What does it take to be a clinical psychologist, criminologist, or to see inside a heart? And perhaps more importantly, how does one begin to travel the distance from middle school to a dynamic career in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields expected to generate higher paying jobs for today’s students?
The Women in STEM Conference is an event designed to inform and inspire middle school girls to become the next generation of scientists, engineers, mathematicians and computer scientists. The conference is a collaborative effort, co-sponsored by the American Association of University Women (AAUW) Redding, CA Branch, Simpson University, the Shasta County Office of Education and the support of sponsors listed below. Girls in 6th, 7th and 8th grades select four interactive, hands-on sessions presented by more than 20 professional women designed to engage, empower and inspire them in STEM careers.
