2013-2014 Tesoro Elementary
In the winter of 2012 our VHS students formed the STEMS club to promote science and technology to our local community after their experiences at the UCSB nanofabrication facility. The goal of the first year was to host an open house night event in the spring of 2013 as an opportunity for incoming students and their families to explore nanoscience activities related to physics, chemistry, biology, and engineering. VHS students led hands- on activities designed to spark an interest in the practice of science, sharing their excitement for the future. The event was a huge success with over 200 visitors. Building on this success, our students created a new goal for the 2013 school year- provide our local elementary school students the opportunity to experience NanoNight at their schools utilizing the same network of enthusiastic student volunteers and hands-on materials. With the support of our administration and funding from our PAC grant, the STEMS club visited 2 elementary schools that first year, increasing to four schools the second year, and in our third year we have six local elementary schools thrilled to host our program! Today in our sixth year, we have extended our reach from elementary schools to community events, such as family nights and the Boys and Girls Club. The growth of this STEMS program at VHS showcases the excitement and importance of science and technology to our students and the community. The program has even traveled with our alumni to UCSD and UC Davis, where students have implemented similar programs at the college level.
