Science is Elementary

Hi folks,

Sorry about the delayed updates, but we’ve been busy with some exciting outreach activities.  Two weeks ago, Diego and Armen volunteered at the Mariano Castro Elementary School in Mountain View as part of the Science is Elementary program, check out our “Outreach” page for more info on this program and others that we participate in.

Armen helped out with the 1st grade class, teaching them about concepts like gravity and air resistance through a fun and interactive project of making paper airplanes and testing them out.  Diego taught the 2nd graders about electricity and building circuits using little breadboards and resistors.  Both Diego and Armen felt fulfilled after this event, because the 1st graders were convinced they could become aeronautical engineers and the 2nd graders believed they could become electrical engineers.
