The AAUW branch of Bowling Green will host Tech Trek, a local, week-long camp at Bowling Green State University, for 80 rising eighth-grade girls to explore science and math.
Tech Trek is uniquely designed for girls to see first-hand how exciting careers in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields can be.   
Here in Bowling Green, the AAUW branch felt that Northwest Ohio did not provide a number of programs geared towards young girls and keeping them engaged within the STEM fields. It is believed that this program also provides the opportunity to show the young ladies what living on a college campus would be like for their futures if they chose that route.
The science and technology workforce in this country is aging, while the demand for talent keeps increasing. Tech Trek is a crucial program to prepare and empower the next generation of girls to go into these fields and increase the science and technology talent pool.
Girls for the camp are nominated by their teachers.
Tech Trek Bowling Green is funded in part by AAUW Bowling Green, Zonta Bowling Green, and Marathon Petroleum of Findlay.
Currently, each girl costs over $700 to attend the camp, and the sponsors are only charging the families $50 to attend the camp, so they are fundraising the rest of the finances through other business, organizations, individuals, and many other ways.
