LBCC Science Night Gets Interactive with Live Lab Demonstrations
2013-05-02 · By Editor
The first “Science Night” at Long Beach City College (LBCC) will take place on Friday, May 3, 2013 from 4:00pm to 8:00pm on the Liberal Arts Campus, 2nd & 3rd floors of the “D” Building. There will be free food, music and live demonstrations for all classified staff, current and future LBCC students and their families.
“Ever consider taking a Science class here at LBCC, or want to know what classes are being offered?” asks Dr. Robyn Arias, Science Faculty at LBCC. “Come by and meet the Science faculty and participate in lab activities at our first ‘Science Night.’ Everyone is welcome!”
Science faculty, with student assistants, will perform live pig heart dissections, bacteria experiments in the Microbiology lab, showings of geology samples, and demonstrations of wildlife and marine biology in the laboratory facilities. “Science Night” is a great opportunity for students interested in Science to get a real taste of the field through live lab demonstrations. There will also be a live astronomy show in the state-of-the-art planetarium.
“I am delighted to showcase the exciting instruction that occurs in our classrooms,” says Paul Creason, Dean of School of Health, Science and Mathematics. “We hope that our first time ever ‘Science Night’ will help to cultivate more science majors from our very own LBCC community.”
LBCC is coordinating with Long Beach Unified School District science teachers to invite their students. Twenty-five students from the Boys and Girls Club of Long Beach have confirmed their attendance to LBCC’s first “Science Night” on May 3, 2013.
This event is made possible through a generous grant bestowed by the Associated Student Body.
