Career Awareness and Preparation Program Provides Skills and Focus

Partnerships Deliver Resources

Skeletons are instrumental for high school anatomy classes—but many high schools don’t have the budget for such expensive equipment. A creative local partnership is coming to the rescue for one local high school, bringing together students from Cal State East Bay and Hayward’s Tennyson High with a donated 3D printer. With the “Skeleton Recycle, Reprint, Reuse Community Engagement” project, juniors from Tennyson High’s Communication Media Management Association program are interning at Cal State, working with undergraduates in the Kinesiology and Multi Media Studies Departments.

The budget proposal put forth by our new Governor in his first week shows genuine concern for education, with practical moves such as relieving school districts from some of the crushing burden of unfunded pensions and a start toward investing in early education. Our new state Superintendent of Instruction comes with years as a School Board member and has been actively engaged with the East Bay STEM Network, in particular in our current work in early math education. Many newly elected state and local officials ran on promises for stronger investment in education, and the state’s strong economy stokes hopes that
