The Sacramento chapter of Women in Technology International (WITI) is partnering with non-profit Next-Ed with a goal toward aligning K-12 curriculum to increase student awareness and to align curriculum with the job market, better known as “STEM” (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math). Through this program, the Sacramento region is leading the way to a better future for our children. NextEd has more than 50 area companies, schools and universities on its board and can be found at

In cooperation with UC Davis, Next-Ed is has created a STEM Summer Camp for 5th, 6th and 7th graders which will be held July 29-August 2nd located at Granite Bay High School. Boys and girls are both welcome and the cost is $250. It is a “hands-on”, project-based camp with daily team building exercises. To register, visit HTTP:// and click on “off site programs”.

Next-Ed is also looking for technology professionals who can come and present to the students—you can volunteer for an hour or a day.
