Oct. 20 9:30 am. Come hear from this community’s 8th graders about their summer 2018 Tech Trek experience at the Elks Lodge, 555 Otto Street, Port Townsend.

Our meeting theme is:   Educating Our Children for a Better Future. 

We  sponsored ten young women from our local schools to attend Tech Trek camp this summer at Pacific Lutheran University.  The program exposes middle school girls to many STEM fields in a fun and engaging way. This summer’s campers  will come to the meeting and talk to us about what this experience meant to them.  For more information about this exciting program, go to our Tech Trek  page.
