Transcript of Intro to STEM - College Level Students

Why YOU?

STEM Professionals
As a STEM professional you learn how to solve the world's problems.

You could be shaping the future on a daily basis.

STEM professionals require that you question how things are built, invented, and designed.

Create, discover, and apply new knowledge to make life better for all!
Why is STEM important in
San Diego?

Home to over 400 Biotech Companies.

San Diego is the hub of technology and jobs in telecommunications, programming, engineering and IT fields.

61% of all jobs in California (12 million jobs) will require some sort of postsecondary training beyond high school in 2018.
What's in it for me?

After you have enrolled at Palomar College you may apply to be a STEM Scholar. Visit us online at www.palomar.edu/STEM for more information
Remember, although you may not be majoring in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics the STEM Center welcomes you. Stop by and take advantage of our great tutors & study space!
Gabriel Padilla is a Biology student at CSU San Marcos. He transferred from Palomar College in the fall of 2012. In the summer 2012, he was awarded the Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement (RISE) Fellowship. He is currently working in the research lab of Dr. Deborah Kristan and his research focuses on the interactions between murine immune cells and intestinal nematode parasites.
Joanna Malfavon-Borja is a senior at CSU San Marcos majoring in Biology. She transferred from Palomar College in fall 2010 and that same year she was accepted as a Minority Access to Research Careers (MARC) fellow. She works in the lab of Dr. Denise Garcia and her research focuses on further examining the genes involved in the innate immune response. Joanna will be going straight into a PhD Program after getting her Bachelors at CSUSM
David Gonzalez, Ph.D. is currently an A.P. Giannini Foundation Research Fellow in the Department of Pediatrics, University of California San Diego, School of Medicine.

David is a native of North County San Diego who studied at Palomar College and received his
undergraduate degree at California State University, San Marcos where he majored in chemistry. He then joined the nationally ranked Ph.D. program in biochemistry at UCSD, completing his dissertation in the laboratory of Pieter C. Dorrestein.

What is the Bridges Scholar Program?
A program to support underrepresented community college students interested in science careers, so they may complete their lower division requirements and transfer to a four-year university. In addition, students accepted into the program are introduced to biomedical research in the hope that they will pursue research careers.

What kind of support does the grant provide?
Financial support for participation in specified activities and academically progressing towards transfer
Peer tutoring and supplemental instruction
Academic and career advising/mentoring
Undergraduate research opportunities at CSUSM
