From the Tech Trekers:

(Quotes from the 2019 Sonoma State Tech Trek Girls’ Thank You Notes)

Thank you for nominating me for Tech Trek. I have had an amazing experience at the Sonoma State camp. In my core class, biology, I learned so much! I did many labs, including a bacterial plating lab. It was my favorite because it taught me how easily bacteria is spread . . .
Student from Diablo Vista Middle School, SRVUSD

Thank you so much for sending me to Tech Trek. I have had so much fun learning and meeting new people. . . All of the hands-on experiments, such as those in my Engineering Core, have been very fun . . .
Student from Los Cerros Middle School, SRVUSD

Thank you so much for sending me to Tech Trek. It was an amazing experience that will help me a lot in the future. In my biology class, I was able to dissect frogs and extract DNA from strawberries. . .
Student from Walnut Creek Intermediate School, Walnut Creek School District


I am writing to thank you for the opportunity to come to Teck Trek and for sponsoring me. One of my favorite things about camp was listening to my astronomy teacher talk about the stars, galaxy distances, and black holes. . . there is so much to learn!
Student from Stone Valley Middle School, SRVUSD

I am writing this letter to thank you for giving me the opportunity to attend Tech Trek. One of the activities I really enjoyed was doing the model bungee jumping in Aerospace Engineering. I love math, so figuring out how to measure the number of rubber bands needed for the jump was really fun.
Student from Stone Valley Middle School, SRVUSD

Thank you so much for nominating me for this amazing opportunity! I had so much fun, and learned so much during this week. My core class was Math and Architecture. We built popsicle stick bridges and tested them . . .we built models of our dorm rooms . . .In Astronomy I learned what a light year is . . . Also, I got to meet many new people, who made my camp experience even more amazing.
Student from Charlotte Wood Middle School, SRVUSD

Firstly, I would love to thank you all for giving me this wonderful opportunity. I learned about water in chemistry class . . . Astronomy allowed us to explore how light reaches us . . .the evening activities included a wide variety . . . the field trips were informative.
Student from Foothill Middle School, MDUSD

Thank you so much for sponsoring me. I have gained a lot from this experience and am so thankful. Some of my favorite parts of this camp were going to the Sonoma County Water Agency, chemistry classes, and mad city money. . . Tech Trek is amazing!
Student from Diablo Vista Middle School, SRVUSD

I don’t know how to thank you enough for sponsoring me on this awesome experience. The friends and memories I’ve made will stay with me throughout my lifetime . . . on one fun field trip I went to the Russian River and learned about wildlife and the ecosystem. Because of the flooding in February the populations of some species of fish declined because eggs were damaged . . . I loved spending time with my dormmates, they made me laugh and were easy to relate to.
