Aug. 30, 2023-- After being nominated by Intermediate East's Gina Philips and going through an extensive interview and application process, Alexandra Kanterezhi-Gatto was selected to attend Tech Trek STEM sleep away camp this past July.
Seventh-grade girls from all over New Jersey are nominated, but only 40 are selected to participate in this incredible opportunity.
The Tech Trek STEM was held at Stockton University in and is funded and created by the American Association of University Women (AAUW).
Each day Alex’s schedule included core classes in biology and environmental science, workshops such as robotic, engineering, and much more. She had an opportunity to work with teachers and peers in a variety of projects and fun activities such as mindfulness, cooking class, volleyball game and soccer.
Alex also attended the Professional Women dinner which included biologists, engineers, scientists, environmentalists, and chemists who shared their life experiences and discussed ideas with camp attendees. Way to go, Alex!
