Thank you so much to Alice for writing in about the AAUW Tech Trek camp, which is a STEM focused camp for 8th grade girls. Alice writes:
AAUW Tech Trek is a week-long camp for girls held on the campus of New Mexico Highlands University from July 12 – 18, 2015. The Camp introduces girls in the 8th grade from all over New Mexico to different STEM areas. We presented Workshops that were fun introductions to electronics through e-textiles.
Girls in our Workshops created bookmarks that lit up! One girl told us that it would have been perfect on a recent car trip with her family. The bookmark would have enabled her to read without (the overhead light) disturbing the driver, her dad.

On Monday and Tuesday, July 13 and 14th, at Tech Trek @ NMHU in beautiful Las Vegas, NM, Alice, Jan and Patrick presented the Workshop, “Lighten Up: Using Light in Designs“. It was a brief introduction to electronics using e-textiles. We had a lot of fun!
