TSEP Camping Conference
In the Fall of 2017, TSEP will take approximately 150 high school students to learn about math, science, and engineering during a 3 day overnight camp at Camp Loma Mar, through our sponsoring 501(c)(3), the YMCA of the East Bay. Buses from Santa Clara, Alameda, and Contra Costa counties will take Black and Brown students and 25 counselors from various technical backgrounds to the Santa Cruz Mountains, where they will be free of the typical high school distractions (no signal, no texting or Wi-Fi) and be one with nature.
Key outcomes of the camp: 1.) Be inspired to go to college; 2.) Pursue STEM related careers; 3.) Develop a deeper respect for the environment; 4.) Learn how to start a business; and 5.) To learn about their personal brand, how to work in teams, and network for future collaboration.
