Tech Savvy

Tech Savvy is coming Saturday, February 18, 2017!

Tech Savvy is a one-day STEM Conference designed for girls 6th through 8th grade and their parents. The program’s purpose is to help young girls discover realistic STEM careers and pathways to education, and equip parents to be an encouraging and reinforcing part of the process. All parents are encouraged to attend, however, if the students want to come with their friends, or a teacher, that’s great, too!

In partnership with Texas Tech University’s STEM Center for Outreach, Research and Education (STEM CORE), the American Association of University Women Lubbock Betty Anderson Branch is excited to host the only Tech Savvy Conference in Texas!
