Santa Clara Therapeutic Recreation Center

"Teens Love Stem" was our debut program held at the Senior Center in Santa Clara. This program was hosted by Meghana Repaka and Nithila Poongovan alongside the recreation coordinator Lauren Council. With the help from the staff at TRS and our highschool volunteers we were able to hold multiple week sessions that were curated to fit the 13-17 age group. Since then, we have been in collaboration with the Santa Clara TRS often on weekly activities and events. For more information check out their website at www. santaclaraca.gov

Santa Clara Special Education

Starting last year, our team at Santa Clara High School has visited the special education classroom everyday at lunch to promote awareness and spread love. We continue to host activities during that time ranging from Thanksgiving projects to robotics activities and science experiments. To learn more about the activities that regularly take place at Santa Clara High, contact nithila@younginquisitiveminds.org and check out the gallery on our home page to see pictures of the activities.

Online programming

During COVID-19, Young Inquisitive Minds was struck with a barrier as we couldn't continue our hands-on work. The team soon decided that the best way that we could support our community is to offer our services adapted to an online model. We are now supporting the Bay Area special needs community through online, guided STEM session and through daily social community sessions through our facebook group. Join us for our next online session!

Our Facebook Group is over 130 community members strong!
