STEAM Expo Receives Generous Influx of Funds

February 2021

On February 3, the district’s STEAM Expo received a generous donation of $18,600 from the Elon Musk Foundation — yes, the same Elon of TESLA — to fully fund a project posted on

Angela Data, a teacher at Briarwood Elementary, created a project on to provide materials for grade level hands-on activities that will service around 500 students during this year's virtual Steam Expo on, May 6, 7, and 8.

The projects will be included in a future material pick-up at selected schools before the event so students can follow along at home. Stay tuned for more information.

The STEAM Expo invites all SCUSD and Mission College students to submit their science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics projects and so that we can showcase their learning in and out of the classroom! Find out how to register and learn more about the event on our STEAM Expo webpage.
