4th Year of TECH TREK Camp
June 25-30 at TBCC
Thirty-three young women going to 8th grade spent a busy and full week learning about STEM. This is the 4th year of camp in Tillamook with girls coming from Astoria, Warrenton, Seaside, Neahkanie, Tillamook, Newport, Medford, McMinnville and Yamhill/Carlton schools. Core Classes in math, App creation and math will be taught by local teachers each morning. Workshops and field trips cover a variety of opportunities in many of the sciences, math and technology. Professional women, who work in STEM careers, will be interviewed by the girls at an evening dinner. The camp is supported by an AAUW National grant, a Verizon grant and individual donations. TBCC provided the campus space for classes and the girls stayed in the 4-H dorm next door. Campers are nominated by their STEM teachers and interviewed/selected by AAUW members. Another camp started this year in Bend and Tillamook’s Camp is the only one at a Community College in the US.
About TILLAMOOK Branch
The Tillamook branch of AAUW works together to promote the welfare, education, and rights of all women and girls.
With these goals in mind, the branch works on fundraising projects and other programs that promote math, science, and technology (STEM) education for girls by honoring nine high school women each year for their excellence in these fields and by providing thousands of dollars worth of scholarships for local women attending 2-and 4-year higher educational institutions.
Our community education projects include co-sponsorship of county spelling bees and the hosting of political forums so that citizens can meet the candidates and hear their views.
AAUW also promotes fellowship and fun for its members offering book clubs, lunch groups and other interest groups. An associate degree or higher is required for membership and we warmly welcome new members.
