This past summer seven
Big Bear Middle School girls attended Tech Trek camp, sponsored by the Big Bear
branch of the American Association of University (AAUW). The camp program is
one part of AAUW’s efforts to empower girls to reach their full potential.
October 19th the Tech Trek Girls will
tell about their experiences at a tea to be held at Moonridge Coffee Company
starting at 2:00 P.M. The public is invited to enjoy complimentary tea,
coffee and desserts while listening to these bright, enthusiastic students
speak and answer questions from the audience.
The Tech Trek Girls, who entered 8th grade
this fall, were nominated by their teachers for the program, with final
selection by AAUW based on academic potential and interest in the “STEM” fields
of science, technology, engineering and math. Each year AAUW raises funds to
send deserving girls to Tech Trek camp, which features hands-on activities in
math, science and related fields. All sleeping, eating, instructional, and
recreational facilities are located on a university campus where camps are
held. Tech Trek Girls invariably return determined to
attend college, with a goal of study in the STEM fields.
Company is located at 42646 Moonridge Road. For more information, contact AAUW
Tech Trek chairperson Cindy Caretto at firstname.lastname@example.org.
