Our newest program, Sunday Conversations, had its inaugural meeting on Sunday, October 22, 2017 at Christ Community Church. The goal of the program is to provide parents and community members food for thought on key issues affecting our teens. Join us every third Sunday for an engaging conversation.
MCEE partners with MAGIC
MCEE has partnered with the More Active Girls in Computing (MAGIC) organization to offer middle school girls one on one mentoring from professionals in the STEM field. We have just completed the selection process and would like to congratulate the following girls:
We had almost 50 girls interested with 20 applications, and could only provide six mentors. These six will spend three hours a week (one hour/week with their mentor) from now to April to explore STEM interests, and develop a project to showcase. For more information on MAGIC, check out www.getmagic.org.
STanford cardinal kids day
On September 30, MCEE hosted 21 students from the Milpitas Unified School District to tour Stanford and take in a college football game. The students were selected because they were most likely to be the first in their families to attend college. We want to thank Carlos Salcido, for being such a wonderful tour guide. BTW, the Cardinal won 34-24, and some of our kids are now interested in Stanford as a possible choice for the college career.
