Camper’s comment: I learned that there is a job in STEM that can fit your personality and interests, which makes me feel less “trapped” when I think about the jobs that are usually chosen and the jobs that I know about and can choose now. I had an amazing time! I would recommend this camp to anyone!

The annual camps have approximately 200 girls from throughout Washington!  These include students supported thanks to efforts of our AAUW-WA Online branch who sent 15 students from areas where we have no local branches.  In order to accomplish this, it is necessary to raise at least $175,000 — from individuals, corporations, foundations, local businesses and civic organizations.

We are seeking camp staff volunteers — dorm monitors (age 21 and over), health aide, student counselors (16 yo by January of camp year), teachers and workshop presenters.  We especially encourage branch STEM Scholars and former Tech Trek campers  to apply to be student counselors. Please click on the Volunteer tab and complete the application form.

AAUW Branches identify, interview and select campers from their local areas, as well as raise funds to support their campers’ attendance.

Parent’s comment: My daughter came home a changed girl.  She was so shy she wouldn’t even get up in front of her classmates to make a presentation.  Here she is today, speaking before a complete group of strangers — teaching them something she learned at Tech Trek about genetics.  Tech Trek has definitely impacted our entire family as her confidence is rubbing off on her younger sister too.
