Tournament and Cal PolyFloat Partner for RoseSTEM 

The Pasadena Tournament of 
Roses partnered with Cal Poly 
Rose Float on an educational 
program, RoseSTEM presented 
by SoCalGas. The program, 
which was held late last month, 
includes field trips to the Cal 
Poly Rose Float facility where 
middle and high school students 
were introduced students to 
STEM concepts used to create 
a Rose Parade float, including 
hands-on experience.

 Cal Poly Rose Float, a group 
of college students, shared their 
expertise in float construction, 
design and decoration. Cal 
Poly Pomona and Cal Poly San 
Luis Obispo have continuously 
participated in the parade since 
1949 and their floats have led 
in introducing technology to 
the parade, including the first 
use of hydraulics for animation 
in 1968 and the first use of 
computer-controlled animation 
in 1978.

 “Cal Poly Universities Rose 
Float is 74-year tradition that 
exemplifies the ‘Learn by Doing’ 
philosophy that emphasizes 
our student’s Career Readiness 
initiatives. Opportunities to 
partner with the Tournament 
of Roses, allows our students 
to engage young students to 
explain how STEM is used and 
that Rose Float uses it each day,” 
explained Cary Khatab, Director 
of Cal Poly Rose Float Club. 
“We encourage our students 
to help these young students 
realize college is attainable, 
STEM related jobs are possible, 
and that STEM is all around us; 
all while engaging in activities 
that reinforce their confidence 
in STEM.”

 During the sessions, Cal Poly 
Rose Float and representatives 
from SoCalGas brought their 
knowledge to the program. 

 “We’ve been long-time 
supporters of promoting 
the accessibility of STEM 
education" said Trisha Muse, 
Director of community 
relations at SoCalGas. 
SoCalGas has invested over $2 

million in grants to education 
organizations in Central and 
Southern California and we are 
committed towards providing 
opportunities for our diverse 
and underserved communities.”

 More than 100 students 
from greater Pasadena area 
participated thanks to the 
support of community partners; 
Boys & Girls Club of Pasadena, 
Partnership for Success and 

“One of our key aims at Boys & 
Girls Club of Pasadena (BGCP) 
is to expose our members to a 
wide range of college and career 
opportunities. The RoseSTEM 
program provides important 
knowledge to our kids, and 
widens their horizons,” Lisa 
Cavelier, CEO of Boys & 
Girls Club of Pasadena said. 
“It’s a perfect fit with the 
programming we do each day at 
our clubhouses!”

 Raymond Ealy, Founder/
Executive Director of 
“The RoseSTEM field trip 
not only introduced students 
to the engineering behind 
float construction, it also 
brought students to a word-
class campus, Cal Poly 
Pomona. Since over 80% of the 
students in STEAM:CODERS 
reside in households where 
nobody attended college, we 
are planting the seeds for 
college. Our partnership with 
the Tournament of Roses is 
changing lives.”

be notified, and a public hearing 
would be set for August 15 
according to Markarian. 

 Although the street provides 
access to abutting properties, 
Markarian noted that “the 
existing straight-angled 
configuration does not provide 
sufficient turn-around space 
for public, emergency and 
maintenance vehicles, rendering 
it substandard for motorists.”

 The Planning Commission will 
also consider comments on the 
project’s proposed Mitigated 
Negative Declaration at a July 
27 public hearing.

 The city council meets Monday 
at 4:45 p.m. solely by video.
