Students Lobby Delta College Foundation for Field Trip Funding

Students Lobby Delta College Foundation for Field Trip Funding

Seeing is believing…

Such was the case for 40 Delta College MESA (Math, Engineering, Science Achievement) and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) students. Through the combined efforts of Delta’s computer science faculty, STEM Academy, and Delta College MESA, a magical mystery tour to Microsoft and Google’s Mountain View campuses took place during the fall semester.

No doubt about it, a field trip to these sometimes mysterious, stealthy industry goliaths was intriguing. “The field trip created a ‘Buzz’ across campus,” said tour coordinator and Delta College MESA director, Cassandra Hernandez-Vives. “Everybody wanted to go, but we only had a limited number of slots.” That number was eventually “whittled down” to 40 computer science, engineering, math students, coders, and some gamers.
