Summer Engineering Institute

Summer Engineering Institute is a two-week residential summer camp at San Francisco State University designed to provide real-world context to the study of engineering through practical, applied and hands-on problem solving and design-oriented projects.

Summer Math Jam

Math Jam is a free one-week intensive preparation for the Math Placement Test for incoming students who have not yet taken the math placement test or would like to improve their math placement test result. It is designed especially for students who placed into a college math course below pre-calculus and who want to advance to the next math level by scoring higher on the Math Placement Test at the end of Math Jam.  The goal of Math Jam is to help students complete their Associates Degree and/or transfer requirements for a 4-year college/university in less time than previously possible.

Summer Physics Jam

Physics Jam is a free, self-paced, intensive, and fun four-week preparation for Calculus-based Physics 1 for students intending to major in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics (STEM) fields. The program is designed to prepare students who will be taking Calculus-based Physics 1 in the future and provide an intensive review for students who are moving onto a higher level Physics.

Summer STEM Institute

The Cañada College STEM Institute is a 2 1/2 week program for current high school freshman interested in exploring careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) through hands on projects, classroom/lab instruction, speakers, on campus field trips and workshops in Chemistry, Computer Information Science, Earth Science, Engineering and Math. Participants will engage in activities involving individual and group projects, participate in recreational activities and learn about on campus resources.

The above programs are sponsored by the US Department of Education through the Hispanic-Serving Institution Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (HSI-STEM) program, Award No. P031C110159.
