Two-hundred sixty middle-school students from multiple Long Beach Unified schools experienced a full summer day of STEM immersion at California State University, Long Beach, thanks to the tireless efforts of the Aerospace Latino Members Association (ALMA) and the Latinos in Science and Engineering (MAES) Student Chapter, who volunteered their time to host the event.
Despite the heat, the kids were not deterred—they were eager to learn and asked a ton of questions. Thanks to the Aerospace iRobotics team, the kids also had the opportunity to participate hands-on in demonstrations of some of the cool concepts Aerospace is working on.
Speaking of cool, our CEO Steve Isakowitz brought in a variety of tech gear to share with the students, and tossed a bunch of Aerospace T-shirts to the kids. Isakowitz even had a hand in making sure the kids got to see and put on a real space glove!
We’re not sure who was more excited on this energizing day of tours and workshops—the middle-school students, the MAES students, or the Aerospace volunteers!
