The Tech Trek program sends twelve- and thirteen-year-old middle school girls to an inspiring weeklong STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) camp at a college or university. Begun in California in 1998 with one school, Tech Trek is now at eight colleges and universities in California. It also has become a National AAUW Program open to many young women in other states.
The Alhambra/San Gabriel branch sponsors two Tech Treks: Tech Trek North and Tech Trek South. Through AAUW CA Special Projects Fund, Tech Trek is a 501(c)(3) organization so contributions are tax deductible.
Tech Trek North services Alhambra schools that are north of the #10 Freeway and Tech Trek South services Alhambra schools south of the #10 Freeway and the Montebello schools.
Both Tech Trek groups raise funds for scholarship through donations.
