Vuong B.

Reliable, Capable, Diligent

The greatest successes come from having the freedom to fail.

- Mark Zuckerberg



As a student in the 49ers STEM Leadership Institute at Santa Clara High School for the past six years, Vuong has built a strong passion for technology and engineering, having been exposed to a number of STEM-based competitions and digital fabrication tools such as laser cutters and 3-D printers. In addition to participating in the program, he has learned interpersonal and work-related skills, including leadership, public speaking, and time management through the rigorous AP classes (Computer Science Principles, Calculus BC, Chemistry, etc.) that he has taken. Vuong also runs for his school's cross country team, markets for the Daily Source, and is part of management for the Political Forum Club, which he co-founded. With the internships and community service that he is currently doing, he hopes to strengthen the skills he has as well as develop new ones in order to one day accomplish his dream of majoring in engineering and becoming a household name in the tech industry. When Vuong’s not pursuing his goals, you can find him watching a good movie or hanging out with friends.
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.
