SBCC’s STEM Transfer Program Sponsoring Free ‘Science Discovery Day’ for Families

Santa Barbara City College’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Transfer Program will sponsor Science Discovery Day from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday, March 15 on SBCC’s East Campus, 721 Cliff Drive in Santa Barbara.

The entire family is invited to this free event, which will feature interactive displays showing the wonders of the world, including live sea and land critters; video game and programming demonstrations; fun, interactive chemistry experiments; biotechnology and glowing bacteria, hands-on earthquake demonstrations; and solar telescopes.

Sponsored through a Title V Department of Education grant, Science Discovery Day is coordinated by SBCC STEM Transfer students who are science majors planning to transfer to four-year universities. In addition to the displays, the community is invited to the student poster session and colloquium, which also will be held during the afternoon.

Upon arrival, visitors are asked to stop at the welcome booth in front of the SBCC Bookstore for a map with the times and locations of all activities. Free parking is available on SBCC’s East Campus upper lots.

For more information, call 805.730.4319.

— Joan Galvan is a public information officer for SBCC.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
