After a very successful first Tech Trek Camp in July, AAUW of Washington State has been awarded a $10,000 grant from AAUW for a 2014 Tech Trek Camp during the Summer of 2014!

Fifteen branches participated by identifying and sending girls to the 2013 camp.  Can we make it twenty branches  – or more –in 2014?   Please discuss Tech Trek with your Board and branch members, and consider participating in this project for 2014.  More information will be posted shortly on the AAUW WA Tech Trek website (techtrek-wa.aauw.net) about the first steps branches need to take to send campers from their local area.  If you have any questions, please contact Tech Trek Camp Director, Karen Manelis, techtrek@aauw-wa.org.
