Digital Delta Project

Digital Delta Project

Research continues this summer with the Summer Research Fellowship for the Digital Delta Project, which documents and preserves the history of communities in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta.  The project is aimed at making a meaningful impact in the community by creating interactive historical resources that can be used by Northern California residents and integrated into local K-12 schools' lesson plans to better educate students on the region's history.

For a second year, Pacific will put together an interdisciplinary team of six undergraduate students from history, computer science, graphic design and education.  The project, which was initially funded by a $100,000 Pacific Strategic Educational Excellence Development grant in May 2016, provides students with an opportunity to combine history and technology in an interactive platform that gives back to the community of Stockton.

The deadline to apply for this fellowship is Feb. 23, 2018. The program runs during Summer Session I, May 14 - June 15, and includes a $3,000 stipend for each student to cover the five weeks of work. Interested students can contact Jennifer Helgren at for an application.
