Young students

Boosting confidence and knowledge

STEAM | 鶹 helps students become excited about and successful in STEAM fields by following their curiosity and putting their knowledge and ideas to the test through hands-on, inquiry-based learning.

Our goal is to help young people from low-income and/or traditionally underrepresented populations in STEAM discover how these subjects are relevant to their own lives and interests, and to see themselves as capable of pursuing STEAM educational and career paths.

Past Events

In 2022, STEAM | 鶹 hosted events at San Cayetano Elementary School and Rio Plaza Elementary School. Six CLU professor along with multiple student ambassador visited each school and hosted a variety of activites, spanning all STEAM subject, for students to learn and participate in. Students and their families were invited to learn and hear from the experiences of CLU professors and students.

Jose Hernandez

Students from both elementary schools were later invited to the CLU Campus to tour and hear guest speaker, astronaut José Hernández, MS, share his journey from migrant farmworker to NASA astronaut.

Hernández spent much of his childhood on what he calls "the California circuit," traveling with his family from Mexico to Southern California each March, then working northward to the Stockton area by November, picking strawberries and cucumbers at farms along the route. After high school Hernández earned a degree in electrical engineering from the University of the Pacific in Stockton. He then continued his studies at UC Santa Barbara, where he was awarded a full graduate scholarship in electrical engineering. In 2004, NASA selected Hernández as a member of its 19th class of astronauts. He was chosen for a mission in 2007 and flew as the flight engineer on a 14-day mission in 2009 aboard the space shuttle Discovery to the International Space Station.
