AAUW-Anacortes sponsors STEM programs for girls at Anacortes Middle School and Anacortes High School. Students are nominated by teachers and counselors for programs that include Tech Trek Camp for 7th graders, science and math achievement awards for 8th graders, and scholarships for seniors in math, science, and technology.
Every year three $1500 scholarships are awarded to Anacortes High School seniors, one each to a student nominated in Science, Math and Technology. Additionally, four 8th grade students receive $100 awards every year.
Tech Trek Camp is hosted each summer by AAUW Washington and supported by AAUW National at two university locations. Our branch solicits funds from local businesses that wish to support STEM careers. Seven students from area middle schools attended Tech Trek Camp summer 2019.
