PASADENA, Texas – Students from the Pasadena Early College High School (PECHS) recently visited the new science building at San Jacinto College to gain insight of experiments conducted in biology and chemistry laboratories.
Their tour of the 113,000 square-foot science facility included activities of mixing solutions and observing changes in living organisms. The group is following a four-year curriculum developed to provide a seamless transition from high school and elective dual credit classes to full integration into college-level courses. They will graduate with their diplomas from Pasadena High School and associate degrees from the College.
