Tech Trek 2020/2021

We want to congratulate these deserving young women

who were selected as AAUW-Walla Walla Tech Trek candidates. 

These young women were invited to attend the 2020 Tech Trek camp on the Eastern Washington University campus, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this camp was cancelled.  In 2021, when the decision was made to hold a "virtual" Tech Trek camp, our 2020 group was invited to participate.

Tech Trek is a premier camp offering STEM education to girls.

 

The goal of the Tech Trek program is to provide an environment in which girls can learn, be creative and begin to see the opportunities that are open to them in the STEM educational and professional arenas.

Residential campers not only enjoy college dorm life and cafeteria dining but also delve into a wide range of core STEM subjects.

 

Class subjects can include astronomy, chemistry, cyber security, marine biology, and robotics, while mini-labs may dive into activities relating to marine bivalves, diagnosing computer hackers, using a stethoscope, and calculating the trajectory of foot pump rockets.

All camps include a Professional Women’s night in which girls meet and interact with local women working in STEM careers. Additionally, camps provide a field trip experience with STEM learning, an inspiring movie night, and many chances to team build with their fellow campers and high school student counselors.

Each year, 7th grade girls are nominated by their classroom teachers and go through an application and selection process.
