San Jacinto College students and faculty assist in Pasadena science fair
PASADENA, Texas — San Jacinto College (SJC) students and faculty members joined the Pasadena Independent School District (PISD) to assist in the judging and activities for approximately 50 budding scientists.
As SJC math and science professors from the Central Campus made the rounds to assess posters at Park View Intermediate School, 30 SJC student volunteers spent time with their younger peers, engaging them in activities such as making slime, shrinky dinks, chemistry in a bag, balloon skewers and making wave machines. Partaking in local events, like the PISD science fair, allow the college students to experience science service learning by applying the knowledge they've acquired in their courses.
This is SJC Central Campus' 15th year to volunteer with the district-wide science fair.
