BIOGRAPHY

During her past six years in the 49ers STEM Leadership Institute, Isabel has delved into the world of STEM through numerous math, science, and robotics projects. Isabel has spent three years as a member of Deja Vu Robotics team, where she helps with management and logistics.
 
In school, Isabel contributes to the student body by running video and audio systems during rallies and performances, as well as producing small promotional videos to boost student engagement in events. In her sophomore year, Isabel co-founded Competitive Math Club, where she taught non-traditional approaches to math problems weekly for three years. 
 
Outside of school, Isabel loves to dance; she has been dancing for 12 years and is a member of Nor Cal Dance Art's Apprentice Company. She can often be found performing in school events such as Lip Sync, BOTC, Day of the Arts, and the talent show.
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.
