The SEA is fortunate to have several wonderful partners who support students in a variety of ways. At the forefront are St. Mary’s University and the University of the Incarnate Word who award $560,000 in scholarships each year at our school science and engineering fair. We are also thankful to the San Antonio Space Society who regularly sponsor the judges breakfast at the fair. Many of our students are privileged to work with mentors such and Joe Redfield, Dr. Linda deGraffenried, and Dr. Borries Demler who guide them through the research process.
The SEA’s Robotics Team has received generous financial support from Scientific Linings & Coatings, Inc., and a grant from Rackspace, Robotic parts and technical support from Bryan Guinn from Prism Technologies. Their industry mentor, Augustine Honore has provided tremendous guidance to the team in developing the programming necessary to run the robot and perform in autonomous mode.
With the need for engineers and scientists at the forefront of our society, the John Jay Science and Engineering Academy has dedicated itself to inspiring, cultivating, and preparing its students for the challenges in the years ahead. Our mission is to provide students of diverse backgrounds an advanced and rigorous curriculum in all subject areas with a focus on science, math, engineering, and technology that shows real-world relevance and will prepare them for further study in higher education and their chosen careers.
We are always interested in developing new partnerships. Partners are critical for us to continue to provide high quality educational programs for our students. Donations of time, expertise, and/or financial resources will help support one or more of the following programs: Science Research Team, Advanced Placement Program, STEM Outreach, Robotics Team, ACE (Architecture Construction & Engineering) Mentor Program, Senior Banquet, college scholarships and many others.
We have several levels of sponsorship. Together we have the opportunity to positively impact the future our students. Please contact us to discuss details about how we can recognize your contribution to the education of the next generation of scientists and engineers. Thank you in advance for your support.
