The SJCOE Hosts Annual Dinner with a Scientist

Students and teachers dine with scientists, engineers, other professionals

 

The SJCOE hosts annual Dinner with a Scientist Nov. 3
Students and Teachers Dine with Scientists, Engineers, Other Professionals
More than 150 sixth- to 12th-grade students dined with professionals in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) careers at the Dinner with a Scientist event on Nov. 3 at the San Joaquin County Office of Education (SJCOE). The annual event allows students to meet and learn from scientists, engineers, and a wide array of health professionals. The event is hosted by SJCOE STEM Programs.
Groups of students and teachers rotated four times throughout the night to a new table and a new volunteer professional, engaging in conversation with four different professionals of their choice for approximately 15-20 minutes each.  Each volunteer was urged to bring something from their job that the students can see, manipulate, or experience. 
The students at the dinner came from various regional school districts as well as from charter schools and SJCOE programs. 
The event is supported, in part, through individuals and organizations in the community who sponsor attending schools.  For more information about the evening, please go to http://www.sjcoescience.org/dinner-with-a-scientist-for-the-scientist.html.
