    Project Background

    Oakland Unified School District has entered into a five year, $5 million partnership with Intel to help bridge the gap between education, technology and creative minds of color. Through various programs and resources at McClymonds High School and Oakland Technical High, we’re dedicated to building robust engineering and computer science pathways that educate, inspire and motivate our young people and give them the tools and skills needed to compete in the 21st century. The goal of this partnership is to help our students realize a better future for themselves and their families.
