CRS Dinner with a Scientist (DWAS) and Other Initiatives
Community Resources for Science (CRS) Dinner with a Scientist (DWAS) and More!
Here are just a few other events I have participated in and organized to introduce children to science and engineering!
CRS Dinner with a Scientist
For three years running, I participated in the Community Resources for Science (CRS) Dinner with a Scientist event, where local 4th and 5th graders and their teachers are invited to the Chabot Space and Science Center in Oakland, CA for an evening with a three-course dinner of food and science activities. I led activities about density with edible sucrose density gradients and lessons about acids and bases with pH-sensitive goldenrod paper and red cabbage juice, a natural pH indicator!
Engineering Detectives Day
During my time as President of the Arizona State University Student Chapter of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), I co-organized the "Engineering Detectives Day" in collaboration with the "Science Detectives" club to invite over 80 students from local schools to campus for a day of science activities and demonstrations.
