In 2002 fourteen students from Watsonville HS, Overfelt HS, Hollywood Performing Arts Magnate HS, Fresno HS, North Monterey County HS, Harbor HS, and North Salinas HS were chosen to be part of the program this summer. This summer, Lynne Raschke and Jason Porter, graduate students in astronomy and vision science respectively, received a minigrant to design and implement the curriculum for the 2002 Stars, Sight and Science program. There were eighteen instructors and project advisors for the 14 students. The program again focused on astronomy, vision science and science communication.
At the end of the program, the students presented their projects through a powerpoint presentation. A SSS almni spearheaded the production of a website giving an overview of their learning experiences and activities.
