Tech Trek 2023 was another huge success! Our branch sent five girls to Residential Camp at Sonoma State and three girls to Virtual Camp. Many thanks to Cordelia Hwang and Stella Hadjimarkos for leading this very important effort for our branch. Their dedication and commitment contributed to another successful year!

If you can attend our Membership Welcome Event on September 9, you will have an opportunity to meet the campers and hear more about their experiences. Based on the lovely thank you notes we received, it sounds like they all had a very memorable experience.


Tech Trek is a week-long residential math/science camp for seventh grade girls. Tech Trek was founded in 1998 with one camp offered at Stanford University.  Through the years, Tech Trek has grown significantly and now offers 10 camps at eight different college campus locations throughout California.

Science, math, and technology are major fields where women are presently underrepresented but fields where they can and do succeed. The goal of Tech Trek is to provide a fun, yet educational experience that will expand the minds of the middle-school girls who attend by allowing campers to experience daily hands-on experiments and field trips related to math and science. In addition, the girls experience dorm life on a college campus, get acquainted with other girls who think science is fun, and meet female role models in math, science, and technology.
