Sponsor a Girl (or Girls) Campaign!
The American Association of University Women (AAUW) of Oregon has partnered with OSU-Open Campus, OSU Cascades, and the Central Oregon STEM Hub to bring Tech Trek to Central Oregon in July 2017.
Tech Trek is unique and here’s why:
It gets messy. Girls get their hands dirty daily in hands-on STEM classes and workshops.
Girls see STEM in action during field trips to visit female STEM professionals in the field.
Girls see themselves going off to college – Literally. Girls will stay in OSU Cascades’ brand new residence hall and attend classes in their new state of the art facilities. Teck Trek illuminates the value of college and validates girls’ passion to achieve.
The camp is cutting edge. Girls will take a cyber-security course and learn about energy systems engineering, a signature degree program of OSU-Cascades.
We’re local! This camp is brought to Central Oregon by and for local women and girls!
It’s proven. With a 19 year track record of inspiring girls to pursue STEM, Tech Trek participants are more likely to stick with math and science in high school than their peers, and 87% of our alums say they chose a STEM degree because of their Tech Trek experience.
We make it easy for girls to go. Families pay $50 to send their daughters to camp. The purpose of Tech Trek is to inspire girls who otherwise wouldn’t get the opportunity.
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT to make Teck Tech possible for 36 girls in Crook, Deschutes, and Jefferson counties to experience camp and launch their STEM interest.
