On Friday, May 4, five Tech Trek girls from Gridley, Live Oak and Biggs, gathered with their families at a pre-TT Stem camp gathering, hosted by the Oroville Branch AAUW at the Lott Home in Oroville. Branches from Chico, Gridley, Oroville and Paradise hosted Tech Trek girls and parents at the event.
Ninety-four girls, from South Lake Tahoe to Stockton, will gather in July for a week of immersion in science, math, engineering and technology at UC Davis. This is a great way to expose young girls to college and the hard work, while also meeting girls from different schools and having fun. The camp is sponsored by AAUW CA and the scholarships are paid by each branch in the State.
