TECH TREK 2012 ............ Read more about California TechTrek

Local students from Charlotte Wood, Diablo Vista and Los Cerros Middle School in Danville, Stone Valley Middle School in Alamo and Walnut Creek Intermediate and Foothill Middle School in Walnut Creek are selected each year to get a preview of college life while learning that math and science can be fun. They will attend Tech Trek Science Camp for Girls, a summer program for girls entering 8th grade, sponsored by the American Association of University Women of California (AAUW-CA). The 2011 Tech Trek Campers are pictured to the right.

The students will live on the campus of Sonoma State University for a week in the summer. They will attend classes taught by credentialed teachers featuring hands-on experiments. Women who are professionals in the fields of math, science and technology will be guest presenters. AAUW volunteers serve as camp directors, health aides and chaperones.

The girls were chosen from nominations made by 7th grade math and science teachers at Middle Schools in Danville, Alamo and Walnut Creek. California AAUW provides the application forms and guidelines for selecting the girls. A committee of Danville-Alamo-Walnut Creek AAUW members makes the final selections. Individual donations and proceeds from the annual Holiday Home Tour help support the enrollment of campers. We are proud to be sending campers to Tech Trek this year.

The first Tech Trek was held at Stanford University in 1998, with initial funding from the AAUW Educational Foundation. This year, there will be ten camps, at CSU-Fresno, Sonoma State University, UC-Davis, Stanford University (2 weeks), UC-Irvine, UC-San Diego, UC-Santa Barbara (two weeks) and Whittier College. Tech Trek is continuing proof that AAUW puts its mission . to support equity and education for all women and girls into action.
