Tech Trek is a week-long science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) summer camp for rising eighth-grade girls. Through Tech Trek, girls are immersed in a world that empowers and encourages them to think about themselves as future scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and computer specialists.
The first Tech Trek camp was held in Washington State in July 2013 with four 7th grade girls from this area out of 56 attending the camp. Last year, eleven 7th-grade girls attended the Tech Trek Camp at Eastern Washington University. This is an inspiring and life-changing program for these girls.
