STEM and Electric Guitars
Jul 9 - 13, 2018

The STEM Guitar Project funded by NSF is excited to be holding an Electric Guitar Building Institute in California this summer! In previous years, it was not uncommon for our summer institutes to fill up by mid-winter.  At this time, however, we still have room at this event. It will be held from July 9 - 13 at Aptos Middle School Maker Lab in San Francisco. This a great way to learn how to integrate STEM concepts in your classroom using the electric guitar. The institute will give you a chance to build an electric guitar and be introduced to the ready-made STEM curriculum.

It's all free!  Please go to for more information and to apply.

The Opportunity
For community colleges to become essential catalysts to California’s economic recovery and jobs creation at the local, regional and state levels.

The Strategy
Doing What MATTERS for jobs and the economy is a four-pronged framework to respond to the call of our nation, state, and regions to close the skills gap. The four prongs are:

  • Give Priority for Jobs and the Economy
  • Make Room for Jobs and the Economy
  • Promote Student Success
  • Innovate for Jobs and the Economy
