Empower Students with STEAM Topics

"STEAM with 3D Modeling: Inspire Students' Career Pathways"

This online session will explore how you can nurture an interest in STEAM by using KOOV. It will cover the educational aspects behind the engineering and robotics, and explain how the 3D interface, physical building, and digital learning can be used to help students discover and develop their strengths in a collaborative group setting. It will also explain how KOOV helps and encourages students to learn about and consider more STEAM career paths than what is often initially perceived.

P2S Inc.

10x10 Booth.
Will have a simple activity for kids (still to be determined) . Also, we will have a monitor showing building models related to our industry.

ThoughtSTEM

As San Diego's leader in computer science education, ThoughtSTEM will engage local K-12 students in some of the awesome video games San Diego kids are coding with our instructors. Students will learn how these video games were designed and programmed, and they'll get to see behind-the-scenes at some of the games they can code with our instructors at our summer camps this June-August at UC San Diego, San Diego State, and Cal State San Marcos.

U.S. Navy

Experience what life in the Navy is like through virtual reality! Navy personnel from Navy Recruiting District San Diego will take visitors on virtual tours of various Navy careers, share about STEM opportunities in the Navy and distribute fun Navy giveaways.

PCI (Project Concern International)

How do women and children in the developing world get their water? They Carry It! Come learn about water projects and PCI's work to empower women and children. Meet women who have lived in places where they have to walk 6 miles a day to get water for their families - and carry a jerry can on your head to see what it is actually like! Photo opportunity provided as well.

STEM Explorations - ROV Design Challenge

This hands-on activity explores the tools and challenges researchers confront to explore the deep ocean. Students will work as a team to plan, build, and test their own underwater remote operated vehicles. Finally, students will get to deploy their ROVs to explore the underwater area adjacent to the Mission Bay Aquatic Center. This activity will focus on the circular experiential learning model of plan > do > AHA! > reflect > plan.
