BIOGRAPHY

Since joining the 49ers STEM Leadership Institute in 2017, Arthur has participated in The Tech Challenge at The Tech Interactive, FIRST Tech Challenge, MakerFaire, and Toshiba/NSTA's ExploraVision (in which he received honorable mention). During his time in SLI, surrounded by smart passionate peers, Arthur has built on his soft-skills, growing from a quieter participant to a more proactive leader. Over his high school career, Arthur has volunteered as a Link Crew leader, a California Scholarship Federation Food Distributor, and has participated in 3 different sports (Swimming, Water Polo, and Cross Country). With a deep interest in politics, he also cofounded the Political Forum Club, in which he works to foster productive conversation around local and national political topics. Arthur enjoys debate and the successful bridging of differences to work towards a common goal.
 
In his free time, Arthur works with his classmates on a free AAC app that aims to surmount the issues faced by the non-verbal community.
The 49ers STEM Leadership Institute (49ers SLI) provides multi-year, year-round academic support, STEM enrichment, skills training, and leadership opportunities to students in middle and high school. Students, who are with the program for six years from 7th through 12th grade, commit annually to 300+ hours of program learning time in addition to their typical school hours. By cultivating student mastery in STEM subjects and in key skill areas, the program prepares students for college and empowers them to pursue their passions; so that they may become the well-rounded leaders of the future. The 49ers STEM Leadership Institute is made possible by the strong partnership between Silicon Valley Education Foundation, 49ers Foundation, Chevron, and the Santa Clara Unified School District.
