Tech Savvy logo

This year, AAUW Athens is proud to present Tech Savvy, a day-long STEM career conference for middle school girls and their parents. Tech Savvy will be held Saturday, May 17, 2014 at Ohio University's Athens campus.  On-line registration is closed, but we will accept late paper registrations.  However, we cannot guarantee first choices for workshops or t-shirts sizes.  If you are sending in a paper registration, please email Melanie Schori (ms335704(at)ohio.edu) so we know to expect your form.

Tech Savvy was started by the Buffalo branch of AAUW and is supported by a generous grant from the Praxair Foundation.

Directions:

Tech Savvy is held at Baker University Center at Ohio University. If you are coming from outside Athens, the easiest approach is to take the 682 exit from 33/50. At the roundabout, turn right onto Richland Ave, then turn right at the traffic light. Parking for Tech Savvy will be in the first parking lot (134) on your left. There will be signs pointing to the parking lot. Parking is also available at Clippinger (84), for those who are familiar with Ohio University's campus. Directions to Ohio University are available here. Parking is free in these lots, and no permit is needed on the weekend. Students can also be dropped off in front of Baker Center, where several metered spots are available.


Checking in:

The registration table will open at 8 am and will be located in the lobby of Baker Center on the first floor. Participants should check in to get their name tag, program book, and t-shirt. Breakfast (coffee cake, fruit, orange juice, coffee and tea) will be available.
