(1) What are the workshops for parents and guardians?

Parents/guardians will be seperated by middle school and high school. Our speakers from University of the Pacific and the Stockton community will provide seperate workshops in English and Spanish.

The parents/guardians of middle school students will have workshops concerning several topics relating to understanding the high school preparation needed for student pursuing STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

The speakers for the parents/guardians of high school students will focus on the college side of this topic.

(2) What are the workshops for middle school and high school students?

Students will have the option of choosing an area of interest for this event. The four main areas (clusters) are listed below. In addition, there will be special clusters that will focus on a very specific career path- such as to become a pharmacist or an engineer.

Registering early helps us place students in their first-choice cluster.

Technology Cluster

Cluster #1: TECHNOLOGY

For this cluster, you will explore the devices developed by college students and professionals, and learn to make your own. We will be having electrical engineering professors explain electricity and magnetism to you with hands-on activities. You will also see how coding and engineering is involved in the field of technology.

Possible careers in this area:Electrical Engineer,Computer Engineer,Computer Scientist

Life Science Cluster

Cluster #2: LIFE SCIENCE

The hands-on activities and demos in the life science cluster focus on helping you understand chemical reactions and terminology in biology to then apply it. If you are interested in the medical field, the bodys function and health-care devices, join this cluster and meet college students studying in this field!

Possible careers in this area:Doctor,Pharmacist,Biomedical Engineer,Physical Therapist,Chemist,Lab Researcher

Engineering Design


What comes to mind when your hear about a cluster on engineering design? Do you think about structures, and how the environment is an important design factor? In this cluster, professors and college students will teach you how to create bridges to withstand an environmental challenge and show you how careful planning builds a community.

Possible careers in this area:Civil Engineer,Environmental Engineer,Geoscientist,Architect

Physics Cluster

Cluster #4: PHYSICS

Physics, its all around you (the force Luke...CAN YOU FEEL IT?). It is the foundation of the interaction between objects which we can and cannot see. For every action there is a reaction, and an object in motion will remain in motion.In this cluster, students will explore the surprisingly simple principles, such as the ones mentioned above, behind the complex occurrences we see everyday.

Possible careers in this area:Astronaut,Astrophysicist
