STEM Cells GetSET summer program looks to plant the seeds for a brighter, more gender-equitable world in science and tech BY WALLACE BAINE PHOTOGRAPHS BY ROBERT ELIASON


t doesn’t exactly qualify as breaking news that, in science and technology careers, men outnumber women, and by a wide margin. What’s more, improvement toward a more even playing field remains elusive—the percentage of female computer-science majors, to take one example, is today about half of what it was 30 years ago.

BRIGHT FUTURE The Society for Women Engineers awarded GetSET program participants

Yadira Lopez and Karina Sanchez scholarships for college.

JUNE 15, 2018

But that doesn’t mean such inequity will remain a fact of life into the foreseeable future. If the American workforce is ever to attain gender equality in the so-called STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) fields, it won’t be by some demographic miracle. It will be because of programs like GetSET. GetSET is rooted in Silicon Valley and its mission is simple: to promote women in STEM fields by inspiring girls. The program, sponsored by the local chapter of the Society of Women Engineers (SWE), recruits eighthgrade girls from under-represented ethnic backgrounds throughout Santa Clara County

every year and offers them a summer program that takes them through four years of high school. During that time, the girls will be exposed to projects in computers, biotech, mechanical engineering, and many other STEM areas of interest. The program’s volunteers will organize occasional activities and field trips throughout the school year. But its showcase event is the overnight all-week program of workshops and tours that usually take place on the campus of Santa Clara University (due to construction issues at SCU, this summer’s event takes place at San Jose State University in the second week of July). “Last year, we went to Facebook,” said 18-year-old Karina Sanchez of Morgan Hill, who completed her fourth and final year at the GetSET summer program in 2017. “And we went to this conference where we got to meet a lot of women who were working at Facebook, and we got to ask them what their jobs were like and how they got there.” Sanchez is one of two participants in last year’s GetSET summer program to receive a college scholarship from SWE, along with Yadira Lopez, 17, also of Morgan Hill. ➝ 4

CHALLENGE Between 1990 and 2015, the number of women in computer and math occupations slipped from 35 to 26 percent.


“I didn’t know much at all about engineering until I went to GetSET,” said Sanchez who graduated Ann Sobrato High School and is preparing to enter Santa Clara University in the fall where she’ll study computer programming. “It’s what opened the door for me.” Summer Week is a smorgasbord of workshops on a variety of subjects from neuroscience to electronics to biomedical engineering. The 2017 event featured workshops on solar cars, bicycle design, city planning and water filtration. In between the workshops is a tour of a leading company in the Valley, such as Facebook, Intel or Lockheed Martin. Each year, the program hosts about 85 to 90 girls led by dozens of volunteers, many of them women employed in tech and other science careers. The week culminates in a graduation ceremony. “It’s so emotional,” said Pamela Schulz, the program’s director of recruiting. “We always have an inspirational speaker, usually a woman from the Valley and invariably, we’ll have parents say their

daughter was a shy, timid person and now she has a clear direction.” The program dates back to 1992, so many of the workshop leaders and other volunteers—as well as some of the parents of participants—are alums. Recruitment begins in the winter, and Schulz and her volunteers travel to the county’s schools with a presentation designed to appeal to eighth-grade girls of color. There is an application process that includes an interview and recommendations from teachers or counselors. Each year, the program brings in about 25 new girls. Schulz said that about 10 percent of the program’s participants come from Gilroy/Morgan Hill schools. “We have a small amount of attrition,” said Schulz. “But generally, once they’re in, they’re not leaving for four years.” “I thought it would just be a fun way to socialize with friends and meet new people,” said Morgan Hill’s Yadira Lopez, who’ll be attending UC Riverside in the fall. “But as I participated in the workshops and I got to meet all these inspiring ➝ 12

Melons for miles

DISEASE-FREE In addition to being trellised, a layer of straw or sawdust

can be added under melons, to get them off the ground.

Classic cucurbits bloom in the summer garden JUNE 15, 2018




weet, juicy melons are a Morgan Hill gardening favorite. Easy to grow, productive and delicious, what’s not to love? To ensure a good harvest, May and June are the best months for melon planting. Melons are members of the Cucurbit family, along with pumpkins, squashes, and even luffas! There are two basic types of melon: watermelons and muskmelons. Cantaloupe, casaba, honeydew, and canary melons are all muskmelons. Melons grow on vines with both male and female flowers. Female flowers have a miniature fruit (ovary) at the base of each blossom. Male flowers generally appear first and usually only last for one

day. Melon pollen is very sticky, so honey bees must carry the pollen from one flower to the next. Hand-pollination can also be used. Melons are planted in 4-foot square mounds. Plant three to five seeds, 1-inch deep and 2 inches apart, into the middle of each hill. Water well. Once the seeds have sprouted into seedlings, snip the smallest plants off at ground level to avoid disturbing the remaining plant’s roots (and helpful soil microorganisms). Melons need to be watered every two or three days during the peak of summer. Regular watering helps prevent fruit splitting. Side dress melon plants with aged compost and water it in during the growing season to improve both crop quantity and quality.

A layer of straw or sawdust can be added under melons, to get them off the ground. This helps prevent rotten areas, as well as insect damage and fungal disease. Melons can also be grown in containers or trellised. Trellised fruit will need to be supported in miniature hammocks. A melon is ready to harvest when a slight crack appears around the stem. This is called the full slip stage. Crenshaw, casaba, and some honeydew varieties do not develop a slip. Casabas and honeydews can be stored for several weeks; other varieties are best eaten right away. Melons are susceptible to the same problems as other cucurbits, including leaf spot, powdery mildew, downy mildews, mosaic virus, fusarium wilt, sudden wilt, verticillium wilt, and belly rot. Cutworms, cucumber beetles, aphids, leaf miners, leafhoppers, nematodes, wireworms, crickets, grasshoppers, beetles, squash bugs, spider mites, earwigs, stink bugs, whiteflies, and thrips may also try getting into your delicious melons, so be vigilant! Many of these problems can be avoided with row covers, diatomaceous earth, insecticidal soap, and crop rotation. You may have heard a rumor about cross-pollination and melons, but pollination between different species does not occur. What does happen is two different types of melon can cross-pollinate. That's how Crenshaw melons came about—Persian melons were crossed with casabas. It just wouldn’t be summer in Morgan Hill without slicing through the hard outer rind of a melon and devouring the sweet, refreshing fruit within. Start yours today.

women, I got to see that there was more to engineering than I thought.” In her four years in the program, Lopez—who graduated from Ann Sobrato High School—developed a relationship with the biotech firm Abbott Laboratories. At UC Riverside, she said, she’ll study bioengineering in hopes of one day working at Abbott or a similar company. “I was always good with math and science,” she said, “and I saw what they were doing in the bioengineering labs and I thought it would be a good mix with what I wanted to do.” Even at their young ages, both Lopez and Sanchez have experienced a bit of the uphill struggle that many women in STEM fields face. “I think there is still a stigma,” said Sanchez, “that this is supposed to be a career for boys and girls aren’t capable of doing it. Boys are usually given Legos from the start of their childhood while girls are still playing with their Barbies. From the start, women aren’t encouraged to pursue math and science in school. Even for me, pursuing math and science was kind

of scary because you had to prove yourself a bit more.” “A lot of women are told they can’t do something that a man can do,” said Lopez. “I’ve personally met older people who say, ‘Oh, why are you doing engineering? That’s a man’s career.’ But I think that inspiring women and giving them the resources they need to find what they’re passionate about is the way to go.” Gender equity in tech and science fields is still a big reach. In the 15 years between 1990 and 2015, the percentage of women in computer and math occupations slipped from 35 percent to 26 percent. The percentage of women in engineering increased, but only to 12 percent (up from 9 percent). At companies like Google and Facebook, the percentage of women who work in technical fields stubbornly hangs around 20 percent. “What’s surprising,” said GetSET’s Pamela Schulz, “is that we’re still doing 25 years later with the same mission statement. So, yes, there’s been a lot of progress. But we still have a long way to go.”
