"My Tech Trek experience was awesome!! I got to learn about new things that I have never heard of or seen of. It was really fun." - 2023 Tech Trek Camper
Tech Trek is a residential, STEM program for rising 8th grade girls offered by American Association of University Women (AAUW) Huntsville branch and the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH).
Tech Trek immerses young women in a world that empowers and encourages them to think of themselves as future scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and computer specialists. At Tech Trek, campers spend a week on the UAH campus and participate in a core curriculum program as well as workshops, field trips, and a special mentoring night with professional women scientists and engineers. To ensure that a family's financial situation will not prevent participation, Tech Trek only costs $50 per camper. The actual cost per camper is $850 which is raised through grants and sponsors.
