Tech Academies Fellowship
Our award-winning Tech Academies Fellowship program empowers educators in our partner districts to become leaders in cross-curricular engineering instruction.
The STEM Pathways program guides our partner districts to integrate STEM education systemically, ensuring access for all students.
Through deep partnerships with 10 school districts and expanded learning programs serving these districts, The Tech Academies is making a dramatic difference in STEM education for underserved communities.
About The Tech Academies
Since 2014, we have supported a network of model STEM programs and Engineering Education Leaders that nurture the next generation of Silicon Valley innovators. Our goal is to systemically integrate K-12 STEM education opportunities in our 10 school districts and the expanded learning programs serving these districts, particularly for those populations traditionally underrepresented in STEM.
We are grateful to our Tech Academy schools, expanded learning programs and key partners who helped us launch and develop this program. These trailblazers include: Boys and Girls Club of Silicon Valley; Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County; City of San Jose; City Year San José/Silicon Valley; Sacred Heart Community Service; Think Together; YMCA of Silicon Valley;
Ocala Middle School (ARUSD); Monroe Middle School (CUSD); Dahl Elementary, Meadows Elementary and Lairon College Preparatory Academy (FMSD); Brownell Middle School and El Roble Elementary (GUSD); Britton Middle School, PA Walsh STEAM Academy and El Toro Elementary (MHUSD); Ida Jew Academies (MPESD); Baldwin Elementary (OGSD); Ohlone Middle School and Washington Elementary (SJUSD), San José State University and Santa Clara County Office of Education.
