Science Fuels
The Future

From clean drinking water to self-driving cars, careers in science and engineering have grown three times faster than any other industry during the last decade. San Diego is one of the top 15 U.S. cities for these careers, and EIS is committed to increasing the access San Diego students have to these opportunities. Our programs empower students to build the skills that set them up for success in these and other areas of their lives: curiosity, observation, problem-solving, teamwork and leadership.
