Tech Trek Campers 2015

Tech Trek is an AAUW sponsored math/science camp designed to develop interest, excitement, and self-confidence in young women who will enter eighth grade in the fall. Each year we interview girls from three of the middle schools in the Poway Unified School District and choose six to sponsor for this exciting summer camp.

At Tech Trek, girls are assigned to a math or science core class, and spend a week learning about their field, doing hands-on experiments and working with other girls under the instruction of credentialed middle school teachers and women currently engaged professionally in math, science, or technology fields.  For more information click on these links:    AAUW Tech Trek      AAUW
