The mission of the American Association of University Women is advancing equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research. One of the ways in which we do that is through ‘Tech Trek,’ a science and math camp designed to develop interest, excitement and self-confidence in young women who will enter eighth grade in the fall. It features hands-on activities in math, science and related fields.

Last month, four members of the AAUW Tehachapi Branch attended Tech Trek Visitor’s Day at Fresno State. This was one of the locations that we sent two of our local Tech Trek campers to: Abi Aguilar and Rosalind Ortiz. (We also sent Maddy Richmond to Whittier Tech Trek, and Hannah Weinstein will be attending camp at Santa Barbara.) We wanted to observe, firsthand, exactly what goes on in these STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) camps that we send girls to each summer ‘ and we were able to do just that, for a few hours.

Since 2012, 90,000 young women in all 50 states have gone through a Girls Who Code course, workshop or event. Founder and CEO Reshma Saujani is determined to do no less than close the gender gap in the technology workforce, change the image of “what a programmer looks like” and, in essence, build the biggest pipeline of female engineers for the future.

The prestigious private college was founded in 1955 at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains, and maintains a small enrollment of less than 1,000 students. It’s renowned for turning out well-rounded, tech-savvy alums

The case for Girl Scouts

If I could name only one thing that girls learn when they’re involved with Girl Scouts, it’s that they become capable of tackling pretty much anything. From building robotic hands to creating libraries that teach new immigrants how to read English, our girls have done amazing things for more than 100 years. With the right encouragement, guidance, training, and confidence, they grow into women who lead by example to do great things for the world.
Girl Scouts is the best leadership experience for girls in the world, created specifically with and for girls. Our secret sauceGirl Scouts helps girls unlock their potential and unleash it in their communities and throughout the globe
