Through this program, top seventh grade science and math students throughout New Mexico are nominated by their teachers and complete a rigorous application process including essay writing and interviews by AAUW NM members. The camps, originally held at NMSU in 2014, are now held at NM Tech in Socorro. To date including 2018 attendees, Tech Trek has enabled 288 girls from 103 schools throughout NM to attend daily science or math classes and field trips. They live in the dorms, so they get the full college experience and interact with women who model a high degree of science, math, or computer expertise in their daily lives.
AAUW Tech Trek NM is a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) summer camp designed to develop interest, excitement, and self-confidence in New Mexico girls who will enter eighth grade in the Fall. Tech Trek NM features hands-on activities in STEM-related fields taught by women role models and typically takes place on a university campus in New Mexico.PO Box 90322
