Caltech Y Volunteers Make Science Exciting at Elementary School

Four years ago, three undergraduate students who wanted to make a difference in the community started the Pasadena LEARNs program. Today, the program thrives with volunteers heading to Madison Elementary school in Pasadena every Friday where the volunteers lead science demos and coach the Science Olympiad team. The second and fifth graders’ eyes light up every time the Caltech volunteers walk through the gate. Their goal is simple - to get these young students excited about math and science by exposing them to real scientists. And it’s working! Check out the excited voices in the video below as Caltech volunteers Nora Linzer and Bekari Gabritchidze give a science demo on acids and bases. Thank you to Nora, Bekari and all our LEARNs volunteers for making science fun for these young scientists!
