Vancouver Branch AAUW Tech Trek

Since the start of Tech Trek Camp in the State of Washington in 2013, Vancouver Branch AAUW has provided money to send seventh grade girls to summer camp at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma.

Through hands-on problem solving and encounters with women role models in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), AAUW Tech Trek helps girls see their futures while having nonstop fun. This one-week summer camp is backed by AAUW’s research and designed to make STEM fields exciting and accessible to girls in middle school – the age when girls’ participation in these fields statistically drops. For many girls, the weeklong camp sparks their curiosity and places them on a path toward success.
