Jay PinsonThe Tech Academy of Silicon Valley begins its eighth summer of operation this June.

Founder and director, the late Dr. Jay Pinson, envisioned the academy as the means to inspire youth about careers in the fields of engineering and science, to enlighten them as to their need to excel in math and similar disciplines as they progressed from middle through high school education.

He determined that the Tech Academy needed high-powered, relevant curriculum, and a commitment to excellence. He encouraged learning through hands-on, collaborative problem- solving.

San Jose State University has named its Science, Technology, Enginering & Math Program (STEM) Program after Dr. Pinson. in honor of his work.

The Tech Academy's directors and staff aim to preserve and grow his legacy.
