Last event, we welcomed about 300 high school students from 14 partner schools in San Diego to partipate in a day to explore labs and experience hands-on Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics with current SDSU students, faculty, staff and industry leaders.  Thank you to the workshop hosts, sponsors, staff, students, chaperones, and supporters who made the event a success for our students.
