Physics and Chemistry Day at WSCC
March 22, 2012

Learning science should be as much fun as learning any other subject. Teaching science through engaging activities enables students to understand the connections, underlying principles, and importance of science in daily activities. Sponsored by the WSCC Natural Science Division, the goal of Physics and Chemistry Day is to generate interest in physics and chemistry among high school students. Events include physics and chemistry demonstrations by WSCC faculty and high schools students.
