Project "Lead the Way" provides a rigorous and innovative Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics -STEM - education for middle and high school students. The middle school "Gateway to Technology" program, explores aerospace, energy, environment, modeling, robotics and technology. The high school "Pathway to Engineering" program, explores the design and engineering processes in aerodynamics, astronautics, and space life sciences. These programs have received tremendous support from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Livermore Valley Education Foundation, Lam Research, Chevron, and various grants. With the robust middle school programs feeding into the Livermore High School Academy, the District has a -STEM- pathway which spans from middle school to college.

The next several entries are brought to you by the Livermore Heritage Guild. The first is the 1919 Ford Model T Chemical Fire Truck. This tiny vehicle is Livermore's first motorized fire truck.

Gary Bausch is the driver today and his passengers are Christine Thompson and Chuck McFann on the tailgate.

They're followed by a 1920 Seagrave Fire Truck; Livermore's first commercially built fire truck. The Seagrave Truck was purchased shortly after the original St. Michael's Church burned to the ground in 1916. The vehicle is being restored by 12 volunteers associated with the Livermore Heritage Guild. Restoration has been underway for 3 ˝ years and donations are needed to pay for the gold leaf decorations on the fire truck. The driver today is Irv Stowers and passenger is Will Bolton. Riding on the 1920 Seagrave Fire Truck is our city Mayor John Marchand. Vice Mayor Doug Horner, City Council members Stu Gary, Laureen Turner and Bob Woerner.
