"PSU Science Outreach Visits Seventh Grade Classes"
February 1st, 2012
Submitted by ES and MS Science Teacher Stephanie Shields
"Portland State University Science Outreach volunteers spent an afternoon in seventh grade science on Jan. 31. The four volunteers are all part of a science based graduate program at PSU and volunteer at schools in the area. The program is designed to excite students about science. These volunteers were great role models to our students and showed them that they can continually learn science even as adults. The presentation consisted of studying electrons and the relationship to the light spectrum as well as movement of electrons (resulting in static electricity). Overall, the afternoon was very interactive and we are very thankful to our volunteers who gave up their afternoon."

"Thank you all for helping me accomplish a goal I have wanted to achieve for the past 3 years. The PSU STEM tour was a major success! The kids had a wonderful time. Some of their comments were, "this was a great reason to miss school", and "I can see myself at PSU majoring in STEM". I am so happy and I hope some one will be able to continue this type of work with our future college students after my departure. You all were so passionate about the part you played in this tour and I can't thank you enough. Take care of yourselves and continue to be a light for our kids!"
