Students participating the Science Expo on April 25. Projects drew in an audience of hundreds.
Dr. Naomi Waissman, biology instructor, was amazed at the turnout.
“The event turned out well,” she said. “We estimated around 200 students came to the science expo.”
The whole event was planned and conducted by Dr. Rebecca Escamilla, Northwest campus biology instructor, with the help of the Service Learning Program.
The Science Expo also offered plenty of learning attractions and more than 150 students participated in this month’s expo. Among those were science projects.
The history students who participated decided made a project on Alexander the Great and the hormones of his brain, alcoholism and diabetes, while others did projects on the history of famous scientists and what it takes to recycle and take care of our planet.
“We want people and more students to get involved,” Waissman said. “Hopefully, if someone reads this, they will want to help out. We’re looking forward to continue doing more of these events.”
