For more information about the STEM Summer Camp tour and PSEC, please read below:

 

The STEM Summer Camps that will be going on are taught by two young female faculty members, both Ph.Ds, one a biomedical engineer with an EE doctorate and the other a theoretical physicist who is helping develop the college's new energy & sustainability curriculum, which includes sustainable engineering. There are lots of girls taking part in the camps and lots of kids  whose parents probably aren't scientists, technologists or engineers, and they're coming from Santa Clara, San Mateo and Alameda counties. The summer camps are one part of what Foothill is trying to do with its Science Learning Institute. Under the umbrella of the Science Learning Institute, the college is engaging middle school, high school and college students, as well as secondary teachers, all in an effort to increase the number of STEM graduates. Foothill is trying to reach into a large and untapped talent pool and show these students why they might want to pursue STEM studies and then provide them with the support they need to get there.
