In addition, the science fest is taking place on Earth Day. Many of the groups have aims related to climate observation from space, resource management, recycling, trash management, environmental restoration, conservation, zero carbon transportation and other things related to minimizing human impact on the environment and mitigating climate change.
Dr. Lawton Gray, Principal of John Muir High School Early College Magnet said:
We are thrilled to host the PUSD Science Fest. This event provides a great opportunity for the students to experience science outside of the classroom and gives students a better idea of how what they do in their science classrooms today connects to the real world.
Warren Skidmore, an Instrumentation System Scientist at the Thirty Meter Telescope International Observatory, PUSD parent, and lead organizer of Science Fest, said:
All PUSD schools are invited to exhibit any aspects of their curriculum or extracurricular activities that relate to STEAM to showcase the achievements of their students. We want students to see the real-life applications of the skills they are learning and be inspired by the opportunities available to them.
The event is organized by parent and staff volunteers, and all participating groups are volunteers participating in a non-commercial capacity. For more information, visit gopusd.com/pusdsciencefest.
