Foothills of El Dorado County Branch


Tech Trek - AAUW's STEM camp for girls entering 8th grade in the fall.

The Tech Trek Committee selected four impressive 7th grade girls to attend the UC Davis camp, which occured July 6-12, 2014. This year’s campers were Callie Adams (Sierra Ridge Middle School), Gina Compagno (Camerado Springs Middle School), Morgen Embry (Gold Trail Elementary), and Alena Parat (Camerado Springs Middle School). The tuition for three girls were paid for by our AAUW branch and that of the fourth girl was paid for by the Soroptimists.

Pre-Tech Trek Get together:

The girls selected to attend Tech Trek and their families, plus the Placerville Tech Trek committee, met at the Cameron Park Round Table Pizza on Wed. Apr. 30 at 6:30 pm.  This was opportunity to meet fellow campers from El Dorado County and the AAUW committee members. 

Continuing interest in Tech Trek by El Dorado County Girls, who applied to be junior counselors.

"We selected Lena Korkeila and Vivian Li of Placerville/Foothills of ElDorado County, as two of our junior counselors for this summer at UC Davis Tech Trek.  As you can imagine it was a very difficult selection process with 29 individually unique and remarkable candidates.  Pretty impressive to have two from your branch!"
