Our STEM Mission
AAUW Redlands branch fulfills the AAUW mission of advancing equity for women and girls in our local area through our well regarded STEM initiatives. The branch puts on two STEM Conferences for 8th grade girls, one at Mount San Jacinto College and one at the University of Redlands. Our speakers relate the need for math and science in their particular career field and encourage the girls to continue their math and science studies in high school in order to allow for a wide range of possibilities in their futures. The branch also sends selected 7th grade girls to a week long summer STEM experience at an area university called Tech Trek. In 2018, 4 girls were send to Tech Trek UC San Diego and 1 girl attended TechTrek Whittier. Currently Tech Trek scholarships are awarded to girls from Banning/Beaumont only, but we are hopeful that with additional funding, we can expand those offerings to girls in the Redlands/Yucaipa area soon. The 2018-2019 program year marks our 25th conference at University of Redlands and 25 years of AAUW Redlands Branch involvement in bringing STEM opportunities to our local communities. We have a lot to celebrate! Consider attending our celebration event or making a donation to the branch in honor of this 25th anniversary.
