STEM Opportunities and Events:
The Fab Lab is an engineering classroom designed to "WOW." The idea is for kids to learn NGSS engineering design standards, while being amazed at their own ability to use math, science, and technology to invent something new.
The lab has tons of high end equipment (laser cutters, 3D printers, CNC milling, robotics arenas, vinyl cutter and more than 100 computers from 3D augmented reality zSpace workstations to tiny Arduinos) to give an amazing science and engineering experience to students who come for field trips and teachers who come for training.

LLNL/LLNS Community Gift Program 2018
A Spirit of Giving
As the managing contractor of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), Lawrence Livermore National Security, LLC (LLNS) is committed to being a valued citizen and good neighbor in its local communities.
In the spirit of giving, LLNS has established the LLNS Community Gift Program to provide up to $100,000 to community organizations. Gifts range in amounts from $1,000 to $10,000. Eligibility criteria and application follow. The primary focus of these gifts are programs and/or projects that support public K-14 science, math and engineering education; public K-14 special needs education and performing arts programs.
The LLNS Community Gift Program is separate and distinct from the annual LLNL HOME (Helping Others More Effectively) Campaign. The HOME Campaign is one of the Tri-Valley and San Joaquin Valley's most generous annual employee-based charity drives. The fundraising drive occurs in October-December of each year.
Application deadline is Friday, August 17, 2018

Introducing Stockton Close the Achievement Gap Now's (CAN): Young Scientist Program
The Young Scientist Program (YSP) is a collaborative effort between educators and scientists to bring interactive science experiments and demonstrations to K-12 classrooms in the California San Joaquin Valley. Hands-on science is one of most effective ways to spark scientific curiosity; and we believe that all students should have access to these types of experiences. For this reason, our efforts are focused on schools in socioeconomically disadvantaged communities. By the end of the 2017-2018 academic year alone, more than 1,000 students from underserved schools will participate in YSP outreach events. For most these students, these events represented their first hands-on science experience.

Teachers College of San Joaquin STEM Masers Degree Program
The masters degree program at Teachers College of San Joaquin has a focus on preparing candidates for the 21st century, linked through four organizing phases: Experience, Exploration, Implementation, and Inquiry. Candidates successful in this program understand and have the ability to work collaboratively with others, apply theory and knowledge, and pursue the development of their own expertise as it relates to teaching, learning and school development. M.Ed. candidates bring their own unique academic experiences and work with an advisor to ensure the connection of those experiences to their Masters Core coursework.
