San Jose Mercury News: SJSU Hosts Engineering Event for High School Girls

San Jose State seminar all about women in engineering

Posted by the San Jose Mercury News March 1, 2012.

By Matt Wilson

Engineering–just for boys, geeks and geeky boys with a love for math? Not so, says the Santa Clara Valley chapter of the Society of Women Engineers.

The organization is taking registration for WOW! That’s Engineering!, a single-day science, math and engineering event for high school girls. The seminar, which will last more than seven hours, is set for March 10 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at San Jose State University’s College of Engineering in downtown San Jose.

“We cater mostly to girls throughout the Bay Area, Santa Clara County, and our goal is to target high school girls,” said Virginia Tam, chapter vice president of community outreach for the society. “Our mission at this event is to give them that first experience with engineering they may not get otherwise.”

The event is also meant to debunk many myths about the engineering field, especially that it is a career path only meant for men. Other misconceptions are that you have to be “really good” at math or science or that the field leads to boring jobs, Tam said.

Girls will also participate in several engineering activity workshops, see demonstrations in San Jose State’s engineering labs and meet women engineers.

The event has sold out many times in its nearly decade-long run, according to Tam. Registration will be taken until March 7. The cost is $10 and includes a light breakfast and lunch.

This event is for high school girls only. There is a middle school version of the event called Designing Women that will take place in April.Details are in the works, Tam said, but attendees at that event will participate in various hands-on activities that may include launching paper rockets, building circuits and learning about solar power.

The day will tentatively include a tour of some Stanford University labs to learn more about what engineers do in their everyday life, according to the society’s website.

For more information, visit www.swescv.com/wow. To register, visit swescvwow.eventbrite.com.

Fields of Dreams: Oral Historian Chronicles Migrant Civil Rights Movement

Oral Historian Chronicles Migrant Civil Rights Movement

Margo McBane conducts an interview for "Before Silicon Valley: A Migrant Path to Mexican American Civil Rights." (Robert Bain photo)

(Editor’s note: The following is an excerpt from the fall 2011 College of Social Sciences newsletter, “Together: Exploring What Can Be,” Michael Haederle, editorial consultant. )

Margo McBane led two lives in the early 1970s, dividing her time between studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and working at the United Farm Workers of America boycott house in San José.

As she got to know some of the older migrant workers, she started interviewing them about their experience, taking care to record it all on tape. She could hardly have known she was laying the groundwork for a lifelong love affair with Chicano oral history.

McBane, now a lecturer in the College of Social Sciences at San Jose State University, earlier this year received a $40,000 planning grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities for a traveling exhibit called, “Before Silicon Valley: A Migrant Path to Mexican American Civil Rights.”

The exhibit, which focuses on the experience of migrant workers in northern California between 1920 and 1960, will include a “living history character” portraying a female cannery worker, an online component and a booklet. It has already been booked into 32 sites around the country, McBane says.

The next step will be to secure a larger implementation grant to complete the project, she says.

In her career as a public historian, McBane has taught high school history, worked in cultural resource management and produced public radio documentaries. She received grants from the California Council in the Humanities and the Kellogg Foundation to produce an award-winning two-part radio program called “Talkin’ Farmwork Blues: An Oral History of California Farm Labor.”

In 2005, when KB Homes was preparing to tear down the old Del Monte cannery in San Jose, History San Jose hired McBane to produce an online documentary called “Cannery Life,” which included interviews, photos and videos with 15 former cannery workers who shared their experiences.

McBane meanwhile was contemplating San Jose’s unique role as a cultural center for Mexican immigrant workers in northern California, as well as east side San Jose resident Cesar Chavez’s role in co-founding the United Farm Workers. In the 1950s Chavez learned the art of community organizing from Fred Ross, who had trained in Chicago with Saul Alinsky, McBane says.

One day, McBane had a brainstorm. “I called the NEH and pitched that San José was the Birmingham of Mexican American civil rights,” she says. That led to her successful exhibit application.

The grant will help pay for McBane and her students to conduct a handful of interviews of the surviving pivotal players in the Chicano farm worker rights movement. A few interviews have been completed, but she would like to complete another six to eight.

“Labor doesn’t have much written about it from the worker perspective,” McBane says. “This is the history that hasn’t been told.”

By Pat Lopes Harris, Media Relations Director

In December, the San Jose mayor and city council commended CommUniverCity for having orchestrated more than 100,000 volunteer hours in the community.

CommUniverCity San Jose is a collaborative project of the Five Wounds/Brookwood Terrace communities, San Jose State University and the city of San Jose.

SJSU concentrates service-learning classes in these neighborhoods in cooperation with the Neighborhood Advisory Council and the city.

The Commendation

WHEREAS: CommUniverCity builds community by engaging residents and students in service-learning projects that accomplish neighborhood-driven goals; and,

WHEREAS: CommUniverCity creates and supports community action projects that provide rich educational opportunities for residents of all ages that promote a “college-going” culture and instill a desire for life-long learning; and,

WHEREAS: CommUniverCity works to strengthen the community’s capacity to bring about vibrant, healthy, and engaged neighborhoods; and,

WHEREAS: CommUniverCity has served the Five Wounds/Brookwood Terrace community for six years, and completed more than 100,000 hours of community development work, valued at over $2 million.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Chuck Reed, Mayor of San José, together with Councilmember Sam Liccardo, and our colleagues on the City Council, on this 13th of December, 2011, do hereby congratulate and commend COMMUNIVERCITY SAN JOSE for their dedication to improving the quality of life in our downtown neighborhoods.

Justice Studies Professor Explores Pathways Out of Crime

Record Clearance Project Prepares Student for Law School

Javier de la Torre assists a client at the McKinley Neighborhood Center Speed Screening

By Javier de la Torre

(Editor’s Note: The following story is an except from the winter 2011 issue of “Advance: News from the San Jose State University Record Clearance Project (PDF).” The project engages undergraduates in assisting eligible people to clear their criminal records.)

I began working with the Record Clearance Project (RCP) almost a year ago, and through this work have developed a whole new view about law and justice. The RCP and my studies at SJSU have ignited in me the desire to go to law school to become an attorney for at-risk youth.

In 1987 I arrived in San José as a young child, coming with my family from Mexico in search of a better life. Growing up, I never thought about going to law school. In fact, I found it extremely difficult to assimilate during my first years in the US.

However, I graduated from Oak Grove High School here and attended West Valley Community College, receiving an AA degree before starting at SJSU in the fall of 2009.

While I had been thinking of working as a police officer, sheriff or CHP officer, once I came to SJSU, I became more interested in learning about why crimes are committed and how to help the individuals involved. I began to see myself working with people who needed help rather than enforcing the law.

There are no lawyers in my family, and the Record Clearance Project gave me valuable field experience in the law. I really enjoyed working with my ten clients, and have seen firsthand that not only is knowing the law required, but communication and interviewing skills are necessary as well. My goal is to communicate in a professional and gentle way so that each person feels comfortable; being courteous and professional has guided me through many interviews with clients from different backgrounds.

I have enjoyed being able to share this wonderful project with the public by doing presentations and interview sessions in the community. At a Speed Screening at the McKinley Neighborhood Center, my interview partner was unable to attend, so I interviewed clients by myself. The one-on-one consultation made the experience feel as if I was a real lawyer. I was glad to return to the McKinley Center where previously I had done a community presentation, this time to help interested clients individually.

Becoming an attorney is a new path for me. For the last eight years I have worked at a sheet metal company, being promoted from the production floor to supervisor to production control. I paid all my expenses to put myself through college, and have helped my mother with her expenses as well. I have worked full-time, sometimes 50 hours a week.

In Spring 2012 I will graduate from SJSU, the first in my family to graduate from an accredited college. Being in the top 15 percent of my class, I am a member of the campus chapter of the Golden Key International Honor Society.

At this point in my career, close to graduation, I understand that choosing to pursue a law degree will take a tremendous amount of work and exceeding dedication. Through the RCP, I’ve met law students, as well as lawyers and judges. If accepted in law school, I believe I can make the right choices needed in my life and do the work required to emerge as a successful law graduate. I look forward to practicing law and continuing to help others.

The University Police Department distributed toys Dec. 17 to more than 1,000 children and their families living in neighborhoods near campus. UPD officers, staff and volunteers, including one dressed as Santa, drove a sleigh up and down the streets south of SJSU to hand deliver gifts, donated and wrapped by campus community members. A second crew distributed gifts and food boxes from UPD’s offices. This year marks the 20th anniversary of the UPD Holiday Toy Drive. Donations of new or gently used toys for children 0-14 years are accepted all year. You may also donate online. When you reach this page click on the “GIVE” button, click on “OTHER” and enter UPD Holiday Toy Drive. Or you may send a check to the Tower Foundation (Tax ID #83-0403915) c/o San Jose State University, One Washington Square, San Jose, CA 95192-0183 – again indicating that your donation is for the UPD Holiday Toy Drive. For more information, please call Claire Kotowski (408) 924-2174 or Liza Rios, (408) 924-2171.
