WHAT: In collaboration with the Morse High School STEM team, San Diego Unified School District and OpTerra Energy Services developed a five-session summer program for students in the school's STEM Distinction Program. This innovative, client-based integrated project based learning program allows students to meet their summer STEM requirements while participating in a real-word green energy industry experience.

OpTerra provided solar education resources and hands-on materials, subject matter experts, and guest speakers at the construction site to teach students about solar panel technology and the green energy industry. Students in the program worked in teams to produce a functional product that can be used by San Diego Unified and OpTerra. Funds from the San Diego Workforce Partnership paid students a stipend of $220 dollars for participation in the Summer STEM Solar Program. The student teams will present on Wednesday their summer STEM projects to regional energy experts.

WHEN: Wednesday August 16, 2017 at 10:00 a.m.

WHERE: Morse High School: 6905 Skyline Drive, San Diego, CA 92114.

Please park in-the main parking lot and check-in at the office. Office staff will direct you to the event location.
