The AAUW-WA Tech Trek team is planning a fabulous virtual camp for July 2021.
Campers selected to attend camp in 2020 (cancelled because of the pandemic) should look for an email in February reinviting them to attend our Virtual Camp in July 2021.
Each camper will receive a Tech Trek ToolKit in early July containing all the materials needed to successfully navigate the virtual world for the core class they chose and the afternoon STEM-activities.
Plans are underway for the following core classes (each morning for three hours):
- Climate Science
- Human Physiology
Classes will be small with 15-16 per class. Virtual break out rooms for 3-4 campers and a teaching assistant will be provided when working on hands-on projects. Core class descriptions will soon be posted on the Core Class page. Examples of the planned classes for 2020 are currently posted.
Your afternoon experiences will also be hands-on learning and varied to include virtual field trips of all sorts, financial management for teens, friendship bracelet making, and an array of workshops that allow campers to make things and explore principles of physics, cryptography, coding, and game making. Your ability to select your afternoons labs will occur in May. To see a taste of 2020 labs that were scheduled click here.
And finally, if you haven’t already experienced making your own video, you will have the opportunity to make a video with one of your new camp friends. Friday will be filled with producing your own video and presenting them to your peers and families in a closing event for the camp.
