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.
