Fun with chemistry

Students in Koni Stone's Chemistry in the Classroom course at California State University, Stanislaus took their turn as teachers on Friday afternoon. They demonstrated easy science experiments that can be done with household products to kids in the Turlock Recreation Department's summer camp at Pitman High School. The CSU Stanislaus students taught the campers all about molecules and guided them through the experiments. For some of these future teachers, this was a first-time experience with leading younger kids. Service learning projects are designed to give university students hands-on experience and real-world learning while they volunteer in the community.
