Exploring STEM Careers
San Diego Science Alliance

How do you grow an engineer? Try building robots, mini subs, or wind turbines afterschool in projects like Botball, SeaPerch, and KidWind. The Exploring STEM Careers Initiative (ESCI) brought engineering activities to 100 teachers and 1400 6-12 grade students from 50 schools in 11 San Diego County districts. This National Science Foundation (NSF) Grant to San Diego Science Alliance  (SDSA) and San Diego State University Research Foundation (SDSURF) was implemented from 2012-2015. This short film gives an overview of this project.
