Arctic Directory: ExxonMobil, Harris Foundation visit San Diego

ExxonMobil said Jan. 29 that former U.S. astronaut Bernard Harris gave students and teachers in San Diego a first-hand experience with the wonders of science, technology, engineering and mathematics when “The Dream Tour, presented by ExxonMobil” made its first stop of 2010 at Abraham Lincoln High School, speaking to 650 students from Millennial Middle School, Innovation Middle School and Memorial Preparatory School. The tour is designed to encourage today’s middle school students to realize their potentials and strive to acquire strong math and science skills. The program included an interactive and inspirational program by Harris, a demonstration on space and engaging dialogue about achieving goals. “It is critical that American students are prepared with the problem-solving skills and tools to tackle challenges they may face in the future. Providing them with a strong foundation in math and science education is imperative, and with The Dream Tour, I hope to inspire students to pursue studies and careers in these fields,” said Dr. Harris. This year the dream tour will visit Anchorage, Baton Rouge, Billings, Cleveland, Denver, Nashville, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Diego and San Francisco as Harris continues to motivate and inspire students to pursue math and science.
