PASADENA, Texas – Approximately 70 Genoa Elementary students packed the laboratories of the new 113,000-square-foot science building at the San Jacinto College Central Campus to dig for fossils, learn about the human body, and create chemical reactions.
The science department invites schools to the campus each semester to allow college science majors the opportunity to apply and teach elementary students what they've learned. The service-learning project also exposes K-12 students to the world of science as more efforts are being made across the College to promote education and careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
