Objective

Even though Silicon Valley boasts a strong 30% tech workers at world level, East Side Union High School District (ESUHSD) in silicon valley is the only high school district which predominantly has students from the underrepresented demographics in the technical field. It is clear from the enrollment figures from ESUHSD that more than 60% of the students actually come from the underrepresented demographics with respect to the Silicon Valley high tech workforce. Also, almost 50% of the total enrolled students belong to economically disadvantaged households.

 

Only 3 high schools out of 11 standard high schools and of 9 charter schools in ESUHSD have Robotics clubs. Hence our goal is to foster STEM education among high school students in the East Side Union High School District (ESUHSD) high schools and to encourage underrepresented demographics into STEM fields especially into Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, and Deep Learning.
