Tech Trek is a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) camp designed to develop interest, excitement, and self-confidence in young women who will enter eighth grade in the fall. It features hands-on activities in STEM-related fields. All sleeping, eating, instructional and recreational facilities are located on a university campus where camps are held. Learn more HERE.
The very successful California Tech Trek camp, created and implemented by Marie Wolbach at Stanford in 1998 (and grew throughout California), was the model AAUW National used to initiate the 2013 National Tech Trek Program. By 2019, a total of nine states held camps sponsored by AAUW branches, including the eight California Tech Trek camps, which are part of the National program. See National AAUW’s website for multi-state Tech Trek information: https://www.aauw.org/what-we-
The California Tech Trek camps are still run by dedicated California AAUW volunteers and held on the same university campuses; little has changed in the way our camps are managed and deployed. Incorporated into a National program with California as its role model - future Trekkers will continue to have amazing experiences.
