By: PRIDE Museum
On Friday, June 20th, over thirty participants are involved in the Tech Talk and Tour experience at Googleplex, Mountain View, CA. Youth will represent their organizations from The Links – South Bay Chapter, Jack & Jill of America – Tri Valley Chapter, Green Valley Elementary School in Oakland and the Faith Family Christian Center in Stockton.
Jacqueline Anderson, Executive board member at PRIDE Museum, has collaborated with Pastor D. Marilyn Fullard at Faith Family Christian Center to provide a one-of-a-kind educational enrichment field trip for a select group from their youth membership. The group ranges in age from 13-20 and they represent Martin Van Buren Elementary, Cesar Chavez High School, Ronald E. McNair High School, Bear Creek High School, Edison High School and Armijo High School, located in Stockton, Lodi and Fairfield-Suisun Unified School Districts and higher education Delta College and California State University, East Bay.
The students have various career interests from biology, medicine, math, science and engineering to business, public speaking and writing. They will begin their afternoon with a Continental Breakfast, served by Faith Family Christian Center before being transported by a luxury limousine provided by the Jacqueline Anderson Family for their round-trip visit to Google in Mountain View.
In the following weeks, the student group will compose a reflective writing narrative about their experience at Google and submit it to the City of Stockton at the invitation of Councilmember Michael Tubbs, a Stanford graduate, native son of Stockton and advocate for education and self-improvement.
INCREASE YOUR BANDWIDTH
As bandwidth increases, so does the amount of information that can flow in a given amount of time.
PRIDE Museum’s Increase Your Bandwidth is a fascinating Learning Program that advances technology and science education for youth by conducting a calendar of local excursions to Fortune 500 companies, high tech corporations, and research laboratories where new perspectives on technology is explained and demonstrated. Youth will be inspired by participating in programs, camps, internships, lectures, seminars, facility tours, hands-on activities, experiments, fun-labs and workshops – broadening their minds to what lies outside of their daily routine and increasing their bandwidth. Hundreds of high technology and scientific companies are headquartered in Silicon Valley that address community needs to improve the quality of life within the geography in which they do business. They are committed to being a vital, contributing partner to their community, building long-term alliances with nonprofit organizations to make a substantial impact on education, giving, community partnerships and volunteerism.
PRIDE Museum Learning Programs are FREE to youth. Our community partnerships with museums, planetariums, space centers, corporations, laboratories, universities, libraries, civic organizations, volunteer professionals, etc., provide our group with personal tours and special events to continuously explore the varied & extensive educational services available from their public and private venues.
