The Synopsys Silicon Valley Science and Technology Outreach Foundation

 

Founded in July 1999, the Synopsys Outreach Foundation works to ignite interest, nurture potential, and empower all K-12 students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. In order to do this, we collaborate with Greater Bay Area education stakeholders and community partners to provide equitable and inclusive opportunities in project-based STEM.

The Foundation annually enables an estimated 150,000 students and teachers engaged in project-based learning at public schools and private non-profit schools with 501(c)(3) status in California.

The Synopsys Outreach Foundation serves as the major sponsor of project-based STEM events across the Greater Bay Area, including: the Synopsys Silicon Valley Science and Technology Championship (the regional fair for students in Santa Clara County), the Synopsys Sonoma County (CA) STEAM Showcase, The Synopsys Alameda County (CA) Science & Engineering Fair, sciencepalooza! (a science fair for students in the East Side Union High School District of San Jose), and enables numerous science fairs at the district, middle and elementary school levels.
