Silicon Valley, California — Kicking off Black History month, Silicon Valley Tech Giants will be sending senior management, engineers, HR personnel and public relations teams to the 11th Annual Dr. Frank S. Greene Scholars Program Science Fair. A program of the California Alliance of African American Educators (CAAAE), the fair will be held on January 26, 2013, at the Cypress Semiconductor headquarters--
The Dr. Frank S. Greene Scholars Program Science Fair is a 3rd – 12th grade STEM-based academic event designed to increase the number of African American STEM college majors and graduates through exposure, experimentation and networking. This year will showcase projects from more than 80 Bay Area students.
Debra Watkins, founder of the GSP and CAAAE states, “Nearly 28% of our Scholars graduate from college in four years with degrees in STEM fields. That is nearly three times the national average for African American students. It is always thrilling to see dozens of our students enthusiastically engaged in presentations about their science fair projects and to realize that the spark generated there might lead to some future scientists!"
ABOUT THE GREENE SCHOLARS PROGRAM SCIENCE FAIR
Strict adherence to scientific methodology and experimental design is required for participants in the science fair. Each scholar is required to perform experiments and/or comparative product testing with variables. No demonstration or pure research projects are accepted. Scholars explore numerous periodicals, library books, journals, internet sources and industry professionals in order to gain a clear and in depth understanding of the chosen experiment.
