Steve Wozniak (inventor, engineer, entrepreneur, and co-founder of Apple) hosts an annual Science Fair as a part of Silicon Valley Comic Con (SVCC); this year, Wozniak attended Synopsys Science Fair and invited certain projects to participate, including some SLI students’ projects. Wozniak met with each student team and discussed their projects, giving them a unique opportunity to speak with an incredibly successful Silicon Valley entrepreneur.
The SVCC website gives a small description of the event, saying “In cooperation with the Santa Clara County Office of Education’s S.T.E.A.M. Team, SVCC seeks to inspire the imaginations of all attendees, including encouraging S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) students. Bay Area kids are doing great work, and we’re happy to shine a light on their ingenuity. In honor of Earth Day, Saturday’s Science Fair will be themed SAVE THE PLANET and highlight earth science projects. Superheroes encouraged to visit and support! Sunday’s Science Fair will be themed FUTURE TECH and highlight robotics and space projects. All participants are invited to come in costume!” (See more at the Silicon Valley Comic Con website)
Congrats to all the SLI students invited to participate!
