At Tech Trek, girls are immersed in a world that empowers and encourages them to think about themselves as future scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and computer specialists.
At Tech Trek girls meet women in science, technology, engineering, and math — role models with paths they can follow. Campers learn how STEM fields solve the world’s biggest problems and discover careers that align with their passion. When girls are empowered to fight stereotypes and follow their dreams, they pursue STEM in high school, college, and beyond.
Since 1998, AAUW has helped change girls’ lives through Tech Trek, an experiential summer camp backed by research and designed to pique the interest of girls in STEM. For many girls, the weeklong camp provides the spark that ignites their curiosity and places them on a path toward success.
