It is a joint partnership with Stanford University and Roses In Concrete School in Oakland, and is sponsored by Google. Approximately 40 students are exposed to hands on chemistry, physics, and engineering experiments to spark an interest STEM related courses throughout high school and college.

TSEP Camping Conference
October 6-8, 2017, TSEP took approximately 120 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 were 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. Please visit http://bit.ly/TSEPcc2017 for last year's event page.
