This Saturday October 16th at 10:30 a.m. there will be a science festival and celebration with interactive exhibits and experiments hosted by engineering students from the University of
Southern California for the ribbon-cutting of the new Iridescent Science Studio.
The studio at 553 W 23rd St. in Los Angeles will train university and professional engineers to conduct hands-on science courses for underserved children and their families.
Tara Chklovski, a USC professor, started the USC class that has trained 300 engineering students the finer points of teacher and has reached 5000 children and their families.
And it works. Pre and post tests show that these youths, as young as 5, can understand such complex topics at magnetism, electric and the human heart.
In September, the Office of Naval Research (ONR) awarded a grant to Iridescent to support its expansion into New York City to 40 more schools. Iridescent has also earned funding from the Good Neighbors Campaign and was a finalists in the USC Stevens Institute Social Innovations Fast Pitch competition.
