Vancouver Branch AAUW Tech Trek

Tech Trek-1

Since the start of Tech Trek camp in the State of Washington the summer of 2013, Vancouver Branch AAUW has donated money to send three or four local 8th grade girls to the camp at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma. Tech Trek shows girls how science and math work outside the classroom and in the real world. With a field trip to the university’s Keck Observatory and a boat trip where girls learned about marine biology, as well as classes in forensic science and rocketry, Tech Trek introduced girls to a diverse range of potential career choices.
