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.
