HTU live @SEMICON 2023
Watch as the SEMI Foundation hosted dozens of local K-12 students at SEMICON West 2023, connecting them with professionals from Advantest, Athinia, Edwards Vacuum, and TEL to learn about microelectronics industry opportunities. Students built an air pollution sensors with support from Sonoma Tech and the Climate Equity Collaborative and were received by Kylie Patterson, Senior Advisor for Opportunity & Inclusion from the CHIPS for America office.
High Tech U in the Classroom
SEMI High Tech U in the Classroom introduces students to the microelectronics industry and its crucial role in the modern world. Through the program, member companies sponsor branded STEM kits that enable teachers to provide hands-on learning experiences that raise student awareness of industry and career pathways.
High Tech U in the Classroom kits are versatile and can be used across various grade levels and content areas. They are also hands-on, cost-effective, and reusable across different student groups. A teacher with a class set of kits can reach up to 150 students in just one day!
We work with two kit partners:
- Introduces students to coding with sensors, buttons, and an LED array
- Demonstrates the relationship between hardware and software
- Teaches students the basics of circuits and electronics
- Can be integrated in various academic subjects and projects
Lessons and Activities
High Tech U in the Classroom kits are accompanied with curriculum that introduces students to STEM skills while making clear connections to the microelectronics industry.
