Fifty-nine UCSD Upward Bound (a federal TRIO program) high school students attended this event. The students were diverse and ranged 9th-12th graders. They are from the San Diego and Imperial County areas. Seven CAICE undergraduate summer interns assisted at this event, as well as 9 UCSD “4C” community college summer interns who attend or just graduated from local community colleges.
