Nominations for young women in STEM being taken for Tech Trek

Mornings

Nominations for young women interested in STEM are being taken for this year’s Tech Trek.

At Tech Trek, girls are immersed in a world that empowers and encourages them to think about themselves as future scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and computer specialists.

This one-week STEM camp for rising eighth-grade girls got its start 20 years ago when AAUW of California member Marie Wolbach applied for an AAUW Community Action Grant to open a science camp for girls on the Stanford University campus.

Wolbach and AAUW of California have since expanded the program to 10 camps in California alone.

It’s a $50 commitment fee for week-long STEM camp at New Mexico Tech, with housing and food included.

Girls must be nominated by a science or math teacher to apply.
