STEM Comes to Cabrillo!!
The 49er STEM Leadership Institute Comes to
Cabrillo Middle School
In the shadow of Levi’s Stadium, the new home of the red and gold, construction is now underway to transform an ordinary classroom at Cabrillo Middle School (CMS) into the Learning Huddle, a state of the art engineering lab which will house the 49ers STEM Leadership Institute. Created in partnership with the 49ers, the Silicon Valley Education Foundation and the Santa Clara Unified School District (SCUSD), this amazing opportunity for students with high academic potential aims to inspire and prepare them to pursue STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) majors at top tier universities and become future leaders in their fields.
Sixth graders with strong academic records, who reside within the SCUSD attendance boundaries are encouraged to attend one of the information sessions with their parents / guardians, the first being held at CMS on Monday, March 24th, at 6:30 p.m. in the library. Learn about the college-preparatory curriculum, the application process and more. No question that you have about the program should go unanswered.
You can also find out more about the program by going to www.svefoundation.org/49ers_stemleadership .
We hope to see you there and go 49ers!
