First Graders Learn Science is Fun! 

WALNUT, CA— One hundred Collegewood Elementary first graders learned some fascinating science facts during the Science Fun Day - a shared learning experience held May 23.

Cal Poly Pomona students under the direction of Professor Homeyra Sadghiani created and taught mini science lessons.

The youngsters rotated through centers with the future teachers during the event held in the multipurpose room.

“It was a great way for our students to see some fun and interesting science concepts in a small group setting.  It’s a great example of Cal Poly and Collegewood working together for the benefit of both our students,” said Principal Carolyn Wills.
