congratulations to our 2021 girls of Magic
On May 20, the MAGIC class of 2021, completed their presentations of their projects, culminating their journey into STEAM. More Active Girls in Computing, or MAGIC is run by magic.org, who is a partner with MCEE to bring this program to MUSD. It pairs a working professional woman with our middle school girls and they meet on a weekly basis to explore STEAM. This is our 4th year offering the program and we're proud to continue to inspire our young girls in the world of STEAM. Our seven students demonstrated presentation skills as well as some awesome projects.
Congratulations to all the girls and a huge thank you to the Mentors, our Program Managers, and the MAGIC organization for their continued partnership. Check out: getmagic.org for more on the organization.

MCEE completes its mini EWaste drive
Last weekend (on 2/6) the Milpitas Community Educational Foundation, held a mini eWaste drive to help families prepare for the Lunar New Year. Over 24 families took advantage of the eWaste pickup at their homes. To ensure that we followed COVID social distancing protocols, donors were asked to leave their recyclables outside in their front porch or garage. The eWaste collection will be recycled by a recycler who will make a small donation to MCEE based on the items recycled. MCEE wishes to thank its volunteer team of Robert Jung, Joseph Weinstein, and Nancy Weinstein, who filled up a 4x8 trailer.
