Each year, scholars interact with Silicon Valley professionals to experience real-world applications. Volunteers motivate scholars to achieve at the highest levels, and engage them in scenarios that provide insight into STEM and non-STEM fields.
After weeks of research, experimentation and analysis, African American scholars showcase their projects at the annual Frank S. Greene Scholars Program (GSP) Science Fair, the largest African American science fair in California.
Thanks to the terrific support of local organizations, such as Amazon, Applied Materials, Cisco, NASA, Stanford SLAC, and others, GSP scholars can continue their STEM exploration for one week during the summer with a hands-on project at hosting institutions.
Scholars harness their skills to innovate on Engineering Competition day. Working in teams, scholars compete to design, prototype, and create working models using only provided materials to compete in engineering challenges.
GSP leverages the diverse skills of our parents to strengthen their ability to raise motivated, STEM-competent, and confident college-ready children. GSP dedicates time to share best practices, educational resources, and strategies to enhance scholar success.
