STEM Exploration Day History
& Past Events
In November of 2019, the SDSU Pre-College Institute invited and welcomed over 500 local students and teachers to join us for our annual STEM Exploration Day, filled with labs and hands-on workshops focused on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. 2019's STEM Exploration Day was extra exciting, because it coincided with National STEM Day! This community event offered students the opportunity the learn more about potential careers in STEM and to experience a college campus and envision themselves there. Meanwhile, our SDSU community, including the workshop hosts, sponsors, faculty and staff, chaperones, and other supporters, had the chance to invest in the future success of these students, and the community at large.
Previously, in March of 2018, we welcomed about 300 high school students from 14 partner schools in San Diego to partipate in the annual event.
Thank you to the workshop hosts, sponsors, staff, students, chaperones, and supporters who made these events a success for our students, and for your ongoing support!
