STEAM Pathways Program
Intel’s Engineering Pathway at McClymonds offers a range of experiences inside and outside the classroom to support Oakland’s future engineers.
Twenty-seven McClymonds 11th- and 12th-graders have been paired with Intel mentors, checking in weekly over email and connecting at quarterly events. Learn more about the Intel Mentor Program.
East Bay Consortium brings 30 hours of tutoring every week to students in McClymonds’ Freshman Academy, and to Mack’s math and English classrooms.
Students take several work-based learning field trips each year, and McClymonds hosts guest speakers from engineering and technology fields on campus. Intel was well-represented at Career Day, and helped 9th-grade Computer Science students build a computer-controlled car using Sam Lab kits.
All McClymonds staff spent a professional development day at Intel headquarters. The Intel partnership has also brought funding for several support staff positions to help boost student outcomes.
In the Field
Students have attended several STEM events, including the AfroTech Conference, Dreamforce, Frontiers Conference, a powerful screening of the movie Hidden Figures, the Extreme Masters gaming convention, and a Maker Faire. Learn more about Intel in the Field.
Intel funded four field trips for students to learn about STEM programs and engineering majors at colleges like UCSC, San Jose State, and University of the Pacific.
Intel shares information with families about career pathways in tech, and is hosting a visit for families to its Santa Clara headquarters. McClymonds and Intel also collaborate with Alternatives in Action to support community-wide events attended by families, such as College Success Night and Back to School Night.
