Science & Technology:The Joseph George Community Center Science Workshop
After-school hands-on science activities are offered daily at the Joseph George Community Center to students age 8 and older. The program also provides support to the science programs at Joseph George Middle School. Students have the opportunity to participate in the MESA (Math, Engineering and Science Achievement) K-12 Program of San Jose State University. In 2013-13 the program will include a Lego League, which offers additional hand-on activities and projects for students. The program will also continue to offer hands-on workshops for teachers. These workshops are intended to support teachers in the development of classroom projects and activities for their students. The Science & Technology Lab will also support the Alum Rock School District’s MESA Programs at the Middle Schools. Support will include MESA Program Advisor Mentoring, Project Review, lesson planning and staff development. This program is funded, in part, by the Mountain Winery Kid's Foundation and IBM. Additional support is provided by the City of San Jose’s Parks, Recreation and Neighborhoods Services (PRNS) Department.
