Help send girls to Tech Trek Camp this summer

2014 November 10

tech trek bgsu logoAAUW and AAUW of Ohio support STEM education as a major focus. Tech Trek is just one initiative that is helping turn around STEM education. Girls who attend such programs are given the opportunity to prepare for college and the workforce, the encouragement to pursue their STEM interests in an environment free from stereotypes, and the chance to believe in themselves.

Tech Trek is based on an AAUW research report titled Why So Few?, which shows that women enter the STEM fields at alarmingly lower rates compared to their male peers. Junior high school is the time period that interest in the STEM field declines. It focuses on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields which provide hands-on whysofewcover_150wexperiences for rising eighth grade girls. This enriching experience provides campers with the encouragement to choose a career within the STEM. The campers are given a week-long opportunity and learn from core courses, workshops, field trips, and experiences with STEM field women role models and many more experiences.

Tech Trek Camp at Bowling Green State University is powered by AAUW and is in its third year. The program has served 100 girls in Ohio and hopes to serve 50 more campers this summer. The 2015 camp is scheduled for July 18-25, and the cost to run the camp is $40,200. We need your financial support to help girls to continue their dreams with the STEM fields.

Please consider joining our participating sponsors and be recognized for your support of girls in our fight for equity. Your support will directly impact the experience of these girls by providing funds for them to attend and experience quality STEM curriculum. Download the donation form and the advertising form. Checks are payable to AAUW Funds-OH Tech Trek. Send donations to: Deborah Wooldridge, AAUW Ohio STEM Chair, 217 Johnston Hall, Bowling Green, OH 43403.

You can also donate online.

Speak out on Convention location: Take the survey

2014 August 6

surveyThe AAUW Ohio Board is considering centralizing the Annual Equity Day & State Convention to a Columbus area location year after year. In other words, the event location would not move from region to region.

Please keep in mind that the hosts of the Annual State Convention would continue to cycle around to all the districts (Central, Northeast, Northwest, Southeast, Southwest). The Convention Chair and the participating branches would change every year. The only component remaining the same would be the hotel location

Please take some time to complete the survey, as well as to share it with all of your branch members. TAKE THE SURVEY
