 Recap of the Tech Trek 2023 STEM Camp

This  June there were two very successful in person Tech Trek camps for girls who entered the 8th  grade in the fall.  The first camp, Sunday  June 11th to Saturday the 17th, was at Stetson University in Deland, Florida.  The second camp, held  Sunday June 18th until Saturday 24th,  was at Florida Atlantic University in Jupiter.  There about the same number of girls at each camp.  They lived in campus dorms, ate their meals in the student cafeteria, utilized the University classrooms and labs for their core classes and workshops. The core classes and workshops at the camps were similar but not identical. Each camp had a professional STEM women’s dinner where each table was composed of a group of girls and a couple of STEM professionals. The girls selected to attend one of the camps were notified by Saturday March 25th.

Camp History

AAUW has been a leader in the effort to interest more young girls in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).  The first summer Tech Trek camp was held on the campus of California’s Stanford University in 1998. Now there are ten California camps and ten additional camps scattered around the United States. Thanks to very generous sponsors and supportive donors, families pay only a $50 fee to send a girl to camp so that girls from a wide range of backgrounds are able to attend.
