About American Association of University Women, the Beach Cities Branch, TechTrekAlumniGroup

Tech Trek Alumnae Group is a group of middle and high school girls who went to Tech Trek Science Camp for one week during the summer after 7th grade. AAUW-CA organizes Tech Trek and the local Branches pay for the girls($900 ea.) who they select from local middle schools. The Beach Cities, Torrance and PV/San Pedro girls(now in high school) have formed a group of alumnae in the South Bay area who went to TT camp to stay connected with like minded girls. They meet monthly to plan events for the community related to STEM such as, annual "Women in STEM Careers Forums", College Prep 101, STEM Company Tours, "movie nights" related to women in STEM, picnics and celebrations. Monthly Mentors/advisors need to be members of AAUW or, if not, they can be speakers to the girls as a group about various STEM topics.
