5th Grade Field trips to UCSB

Each quarter, 8 to 10 workshops are offered for 5th graders in the lab at UCSB. Each workshop includes a class of 25 to 30 students, parents and teachers. Undergraduates in the chemistry club and in general chemistry lecture classes are provided with the opportunity to teach in the chemistry outreach program. Undergraduates work with the students on a number of exciting hands-on activities in the laboratory. The goal of the program is to help teachers develop curriculum units that meet the 5th grade physical science standards for California Public Schools, and to inspire 5th grade students to pursue science and higher education.
