Thirty-five young women going to 8th grade will spend a busy and full week learning about STEM June 23-28 at TBCC.  This will be the 6th year of camp in Tillamook with girls coming from Astoria, Warrenton, Seaside, Neahkanie, Tillamook, Newport, St. Helens and Nestucca schools.  Core Classes App creation and Cyber Security are 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, are interviewed by the girls at an evening dinner.  TBCC provides the campus space for classes and the girls stay in the 4-H dorm next door.  Campers are nominated by their STEM teachers in January and interviewed/selected by AAUW members in March.   This National Program is held at Universities in eleven States and Tillamook’s camp is the only one held at a Community College.  AAUW Bend’s camp will be starting their 3rd year

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.
