Students (and their parents/guardians and teachers) are invited to attend a conference by and for students. Students present workshops on their favorite subjects; other students attend these workshops! Open to all students grades 3–12 in Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, Monterey, San Benito and San Mateo Counties. You do not need to be a GATE-identified student in order to attend the conference, or to present a workshop. Everyone is welcome to this FREE conference!

This slideshow (9 MB PDF ) can be shown to students to explain what the conference is and how to prepare a workshop presentation.
The conference is open to ALL students from throughout the region: Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, San Mateo, Monterey and San Benito Counties. You do not need to be a GATE-identified student in order to attend the conference, or to present a workshop. Everyone is welcome!
Two Ways to Participate:
Students can present a workshop of their choice, and also attend other students’ workshops. (More information about presenting, including a list of possible topics below.)
Students can attend the conference without presenting, and just enjoy other students’ workshops.
At the conference, students will offer a wide variety of workshops and presentations to other students. Much like an adult professional conference, students will receive a program that lists the various presentations and workshops, and can choose to attend up to six sessions.
DeAnza Community College in Cupertino, CA. DeAnza College is conveniently located at 21250 Stevens Creek Boulevard, right off Highway 85. Founded in 1967, DeAnza’s 112-acre campus is a lovely place to spend an afternoon — and to attend college! The Student-to-Student Conference will be held in the “L7” and “L8” buildings and the fountain quad these buildings face, and they are just a few steps from Parking lots A & B. This map (514 KB PDF) shows where buildings L7 & L8 are, as well as Parking Lots A & B; more maps are available at www.deanza.edu/map/.
The conference program will begin at 1:00 pm sharp! Please plan on arriving by 12:30 to park and sign in, so that we can begin on time.
More About Presenting a Workshop:
Students wishing to offer a workshop, performance or other presentation must register and submit their proposal to us no later than Tuesday May 2. The registration form (coming soon!) has a place for your presentation’s title and description (500 characters max = around 100 words). You can also let us know that you want to present, complete the form with everything except the description, and send us your presentation description a few days later, but make sure we get your workshop description to us by Friday, May 5, or you may not be able to present! NOTE: A parent, guardian, teacher or other adult (21 years or older) must be in the room while you are presenting!
Teachers and Parents: Encourage your students/children to present a workshop!
