The Largest STEM Festival in San Diego!

What an honor it was to lead a Fireside Chat with the League of Extraordinary Scientists and Engineers as a part of EXPO Day during the San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering for the Second Year!

Thanks to my Friends and Collabors who were also able to attend my Chat “In a visually unbalanced career field, Jasmine artistically engineers a new perspective on diversity.”

Eternally grateful for Jeane and the team at LXS and the ongoing “Science-ing” opportunities to meet the coolest nerds I’ve ever met!

Speakers Needed at Bell Middle School

Good Morning,

Speaker Series 2018

My name is Precious Hubbard and I am the principal at Bell Middle school. I am looking for San Diego community members who would like to motivate and inspire middle school age students with a brief and engaging interaction. If you aren’t comfortable delivering a 45-minute presentation, we can add you to a panel of speakers (2-3). Our students need to see professionals they can relate to and hear stories of resiliency.

Please see an invitation attached to speak to students at Bell Middle school during our speaker’s series. If you are interested, be prepared to commit at least one hour and send a mini bio ahead of time so teachers can sign their classes up to hear you speak. My contact information is below and in the letter.

Thank you.

Principal Precious Hubbard
