Saturday, April 15, the college held their annual S.T.R.E.A.M. Festival at the Oceanside campus attracting K-8 students and their families from the community to participate in science experiments created by several local elementary schools, high schools and college students.
The college holds this event annually in hopes to inspire young children to want to further their education to the college level and also their families who may be considering continuing their education. S.T.R.E.A.M. stands for Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics and these subjects are useful
Children and their families were invited into classrooms to get the full experience of being a college student. In the anatomy lab, children dissected a cow’s eyeball and used the anatomy models to learn the parts of a body. In the design classroom a person could get 3-D scanned and have their image emailed to them.
S.T.R.E.A.M. stands for Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics and these subjects are crucial to creativity and innovation.
The different schools collaborated to create the festival. The event was free and lasted four hours from 1 to 3 p.m.
