The Family Program provides a fun and educational environment for UC San Diego Alumni, Staff, and Faculty parents with children in middle school or high school to spend time together through engaging hands-on projects.
Our Project in a Box (PiB) team is dedicated to developing hands-on projects to help our students gain practical skills for their future.
We care about making projects accessible for our past, present, and future generations of engineers.
We are excited to launch the family program to provide an immersive experience in hands-on learning for parents and their children.
Our hands-on learning approach employs engaged learning by encouraging students to solve problems at a systems level. They combine building, problem solving, and programming to complete the project.
In a globally competitive workforce we understand experience is important for students. With the hands-on approach, students gain early entry into project building and can further extend and build their knowledge once they've built the foundation.
In any project environment, team work is an important aspect in achieving success. The program invites parents and children to work together to accomplish the project challenges and learn together.
