Camp Model

The key components of the Tech Trek model are as follows:

    • Local AAUW Branches sponsor girls to attend camp
    • Branches work with seventh-grade science, math, and/or technology teachers who identify and nominate candidates to attend Tech Trek.
    • Girls apply and are selected by their local branch to attend the camp.
    • Attendees reside on the university campus for a week, Sunday to Saturday.
    • During the week of camp, girls attend a daily STEM-related core class.
    • Throughout the days and evenings, girls participate in hands-on activities, workshops, labs, etc.
    • On-campus field trips enhance STEM learning.
    • Girls interact daily with female STEM role models.
    • Girls hear from female STEM professionals at a Professional Women’s Night.
