The Environmental Science Workshop is a unique award-winning program for students to engage in hands-on science concepts and gain an appreciation for how materials can be re-used in creative and exciting ways. The Watsonville Science Workshop program includes three (3) after-school open-door workshops, four satellite workshops in outlying areas, school-based programs at 18 sites, and science classes for two alternative high schools. The Workshop program reaches a significant number of students, a total of approximately 600 students each week. The program is coordinated through the expertise of Jose Sandoval with the help of an Assistant Coordinator and a staff of 6.

The core of the Environmental Science Workshop is the drop-in program that is open for weekdays after school and on Saturdays and school vacations. Local youth and their families are free to come in at anytime to work on projects  that interest them. The workshop staff provides technical help and guidance, as well as making sure each person is working safely.
