Pat Lopes Harris shared a blog on September 23, 2013 on our Youth STEM Network program and Science & Engineering in Action program, “San José State has received $25,000 grants from Intel for each of three innovative programs all aimed at getting elementary and middle school students fired up about science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Intel is the first major donor to the Girls STEM Network and Youth STEM Network programs, under the direction of Virginia Lehmkuhl-Dakhwe of the Jay Pinson STEM Education initiative within the College of Science.
Both programs match SJSU students from the Communication Studies 157 service learning course with community-based efforts to nurture interest in science and math from a very young age.
Intel’s support will also help sustain SJSU’s Science and Engineering in Action program, which matches SJSU student mentors with underserved downtown elementary and middle schools, where they meet to explore science and engineering through engaging hands-on projects.
SJSU collaborates with CommUniverCity San José and YWCA Silicon Valley on these projects, in addition to many schools, serving hundreds of young people.” (Harris, 2013)
