The Student Board at The Tech Interactive is a dynamic group of high school volunteers that connects youth across the South Bay by giving them a platform to elevate community voices and rally against the most pressing issues of our time. Alongside the Tech Interactive and local community, the Board aims to capture and highlight diverse voices, as well as to design, organize, and execute engaging community conversations, events and reflections to empower youth.

Who we are
To encourage STEM learning and engagement, cultural and artistic celebration, and youth empowerment through community collaboration.
2021-22 Community Listening Project
This year, Student Board members will be leading listening activities to find, highlight, and elevate teen voices within their communities. Our focus is to learn more about how teen interests, culture, and career aspirations intersect with science, technology, math, and/or engineering. The insights gained from this project will shape The Tech Interactive’s future teen programming.
