TechSavvy, a one-day event, designed by AAUW national, seeks to develop girls’ interest and build their self-confidence in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers. The program includes imaginative and interactive workshops facilitated by STEM professionals and professors.
There is a simultaneous program for parents highlighting college preparation and how to be supportive. The Saint Cloud Area Branch is the first to offer the program in Minnesota by collaborating with our university partners, St. Cloud State University and the College of Saint Benedict/St. John’s University. STEM majors from SCSU and CSB volunteer to guide and assist the school girls. The program is offered annually and participation continues to grow.
