The showcase on July 26 recognized participating interns and celebrated
their successful completion of a six-week paid internship with the
company. Projects included a sign language translator, robotic guide dog
for people with visual impairments and an artificial intelligence-based
car-theft deterrent system. In addition to building prototypes,
participating students also learned various soft skills – including
PowerPoint basics, public speaking skills and career planning – and
participated in employee networking events during their internships.

"At Intel, we continuously engage in opportunities to identify and build
our talent pipeline. We are proud of the work we have accomplished in a
wonderful partnership with the Oakland Unified School District in
support of students," said Barb Whye, Intel's chief diversity and
inclusion officer. "Our focused engagement with students provides
opportunities for hands-on learning experiences and access to mentors.
Engaging students early in the process and exposure to Intel role models
and mentors will make a huge difference in the decision to pursue STEM
degrees. Today's students are tomorrow's innovators, and we have an
obligation to ensure they are ready."

The five-year collaboration with the district is expected to reach 2,300
students, encouraging them to pursue future education in science,
technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields. It is part of Intel's
overall diversity in technology initiative
, which aims to accelerate
diversity and inclusion – not just at Intel, but across the technology
industry.
