The program is offered at no cost and is located at Cabrillo Middle School (grades 7-8) and Santa Clara High School (grades 9-12). The 49ers STEM Leadership Institute was created in partnership with the 49ers, the Silicon Valley Education Foundation and the Santa Clara Unified School District and supported by Chevron.
