AAUW Flagler picks six students for Tech Trek scholarship


The American Association of University Women (AAUW) Flagler has announced this year’s recipients for its Tech Trek scholarship.

Six students, from three Flagler County middle schools – Buddy Taylor, Imagine and Indian Trails –  will attend Tech Trek 2019 Camp this June. Tech Trek is a STEM model camp designed to introduce middle school-aged girls to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

Since 2013, 26 students have attended the weeklong residential camp held at campuses throughout Florida. This year’s camps, hosted by Stetson University and Florida Atlantic University Honors College, will welcome a total of 96 girls from around the state.

Flagler County will be represented by Haley Tarala, Kumite Clavizzao, Naomi Knight, Summer Barnes, Carly Hyers and Leila Jackson. Tech Trek offers middle school girls entering the eighth grade the opportunity to build model bridges, program robotic cars, create computer applications, become a marine biologist for the day, and explore energy through the power of wind.

Donations for Tech Trek are appreciated and can be mailed to AAUW Flagler, P.O. Box 354873, Palm Coast, FL 32135-4873. Make checks payable to AAUW Flagler and note “Tech Trek” in the memo section.
