Students, Scientists Mind Meld at JPL Science Fair Showcase

LA County Science Fair participants share their projects with JPL Scientists!

LA County Science Fair participants share their projects with JPL Scientists!

More than 50 students from schools across Los Angeles County took their science experiments and engineering designs on the road on Tuesday for the opportunity to display their work during a science fair showcase at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.

Students as young as 11 filed into JPL’s von Karman auditorium, eager to speak with professional scientists and engineers about their projects, which examined questions like: Could a solar oven be an effective cooking tool? How well does the human eye adjust to light? Is hagfish slime an efficient material for cleaning up oil spills? And how do different building bracing systems stand up in an earthquake?

JPL’s chief scientist, Dan McCleese, who oversees the laboratory’s research programs, met with students about their projects to offer feedback and encouragement. Learn more by clicking here:

YOU DID IT!  500 lbs of Food Collected!

food cansThanks to the innovative vision of Haleema Abbasi, a sophomore at Beckman High School in Orange County, students brought canned food to steady their project boards and dropped off their cans at the LA Food Bank collections bins during take-down.

We are thrilled to announce that your generous contributions helped the 2015 LA County SciencLA Food bank logoe & Engineering Fair donate over 500 pounds of food to the LA County Food Bank — providing 420 meals to needy families, children and the elderly.  We are pleased to be part of the The Science CAN! Initiative, transforming science fairs into food drives. We are looking forward to continuing this partnership next year, and thank you for your support!
