S.T.E.M. Skills for All! Schmahl Science Workshops

Like many start-ups in Silicon Valley, Schmahl Science Workshops (SSW) began in a garage in 1996. Today, SSW is a non-profit organization that provides hands-on science in classrooms at over 150 schools across the San Francisco Bay Area, serving more than 34,000 students each year!

At the San Jose Mini Maker Faire Schmahl Science Workshops will have some of these hands on activities for visitors to try themselves! Visitors can extract and run DNA from strawberries!

Later in the day, visitors can blend science and creativity in SSW’s bandanna chromatography activity, where you can create unique designs on bandannas using isopropyl alcohol; and see some of Schmahl’s research students showing off some of their creations!
