In November, the College of Alameda hosted a day of science exploration for 8th graders from Alameda Community Learning Center, a local public charter school.

Throughout the day, the middle schoolers were exposed to College of Alameda classes, professors, administrators and a fully outfitted science labs.

Alameda Community Learning Center Life Science Facilitator Marina Large, June Cook and chaperones walked with students over to the college’s science annex for a day of science instruction and demonstrations.

The eighth graders participated in demonstrations in conductivity, organic/inorganic chemistry, and human anatomy.

In a hands-on activity, the college’s anatomy and physiology instructor first showed a video on bone strength and flexibility. Following the video was a demonstration on bone strength and flexibility verses cement.

Students learned that bone strength and flexibility is stronger then cement.

Finally, Dean Lila Celhay, College of Alameda’s dean of workforce development and applied sciences visited the classroom and talked to the students. They learned about a dean’s role and discussed facts about attending college.
