There have been many changes due to COVID-19. As the 49ers STEM Leadership Institute and Santa Clara Unified School District have shifted to remote learning, we at SLI are collecting resources for entertainment, encouragement, and education; and compiling them together a little weekly periodical for you to enjoy and to share with others who might benefit.
The 49ers STEM Leadership Institute (49ers SLI) provides multi-year, year-round academic support, STEM enrichment, skills training, and leadership opportunities to students in middle and high school. Students, who are with the program for six years from 7th through 12th grade, commit annually to 300+ hours of program learning time in addition to their typical school hours. By cultivating student mastery in STEM subjects and in key skill areas, the program prepares students for college and empowers them to pursue their passions; so that they may become the well-rounded leaders of the future. The 49ers STEM Leadership Institute is made possible by the strong partnership between Silicon Valley Education Foundation, 49ers Foundation, Chevron, and the Santa Clara Unified School District.
