September 2017 Luncheon

Welcome Back!  Our September meeting features our Tech Trek campers. Since 1998, AAUW Tech Trek has worked to help girls explore their interests in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).  This year, Alameda Branch sent five girls from Alameda schools to Sonoma State to live and eat in the dorms, attend lectures, learn by doing, go on outings, meet professional women working in STEM fields and have fun!

Tech Trek is designed to make STEM accessible to girls in middle school and in many cases facilitates their curiosity, placing them on a path toward success.  Come see them, listen to them, and hear about their adventures!
