Teentech is a one-day event designed to demonstrate that STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education and careers are exciting, relevant, and accessible to girls and women. Click here to learn why AAUW NJ sponsors Teentech.
Teentech participants engage in laboratory, engineering, and math workshops presented at a host college/university, giving them confidence-building experiences in a real college setting. The event is run on a school day as an approved school field trip from each attending district. The educators who accompany the girls participate in their own hands-on workshop in the morning and a panel discussion session in the afternoon.
Teentech has been a project of the American Association of University Women of New Jersey (AAUW NJ), held in collaboration with a host college/university, for nearly 20 years. Key partners that lend their expertise to Teentech are: The Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers (IEEE), U.S. Department of Labor Women’s Bureau, NJ Technology and Engineering Educators Assn., and the NJ School Counselors Association.
