STEMbox – Great Gift Idea
StemBox is a monthly subscription service that sends young girls aged 7-13 a fun and educational science experiment each month. StemBox and Green Works have partnered up and will donate $1 to AAUW for every box sold in March 2016. This money will go directly to powering our national Tech Trek program. Order a STEMbox for a special young girl in your life!
Make a Difference!
Learn New Things! Meet New Friends! Have Fun!
Just over 110 years ago a small group of women graduates in Ann Arbor gathered together to form the Ann Arbor Branch of the Association of Collegiate Alumni – the forerunner of AAUW. Today we are a vibrant, active group of some 300 intellectually curious women, devoted to improving the lives of women and girls through education. Along the way we manage to improve our own lives – and have a lot of fun. We welcome new members.
The AAUW Ann Arbor Branch Offers
- A group of educated women with diverse backgrounds and experiences
- Informative and stimulating monthly programs
- More than 35 small interest groups covering a wide range of topics and activities
