College OPTIONS students participate in STEM focused field trip

On October 18th College OPTIONS took 42 freshmen from Red Bluff and Corning High Schools to the Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose and San Jose State University.

Students interested in STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) careers were able to participate in multiple interactive exhibits at the Tech Museum including thermal cameras, robotics, earthquake simulation, and genetic research labs. The Tech Museum is at the heart of the Silicon Valley and is a non-profit learning resource established to inspire innovation. Students were also able to view the STEM-based IMAX film “Forces of Nature” which many students touted as a highlight of the trip.
