CSU students and faculty are bringing a whole lot of fun and science to K-12 students in schools, after school youth programs, science museums and summer camp.
The chemistry department at CSU Bakersfield, in collaboration with the student chemistry club and several K-12 after-school programs, presents Chemical Circus. This interactive program provides undergraduate students with the opportunity to reinforce their education while promoting an interest in science among local youth at an early age.
The College of Natural Science and Gateway Science Museum came together through service learning to provide undergraduate students an opportunity to master scientific content within their STEM disciplines through hands-on activity development and delivery of activities for museum visitors.
