Registration link (Starts at 9am Feb 2nd)
During the spring semester of 2015, TUSD GATE identified students will be offered the opportunity to participate in science inquiry enrichment sessions to be held at El Camino College on Saturdays. There is no cost to the student. These sessions are scheduled for February 21 (6th grade focus), March 28 (7th grade focus), and April 18 (6th and 7th grade focus). An El Camino College science professor, together with a TUSD Science teacher and El Camino College Student Ambassadors, will facilitate an inquiry science lesson that combines a laboratory experience with an exploratory mystery component. Topics will include a medical mystery involving a dog suffering from vertigo (6th grade), a crime scene that needs some serious forensics work (7th grade), and a “patient zero” challenge as students prevent the next pandemic (6th and 7th). Beyond the academic focus these sessions provide, students will also experience life on a college campus.
There will be two sessions on each date. One session will be from 8:00 - 10:00 and the second session session will be from 10:30 - 12:30. We must limit each session (two sessions a day) to 25 students.
Registration will begin on Monday, February 2, beginning at 9:00. Please note that we are accepting applications as they are time stamped, but will also make sure that all middle schools are represented. After we confirm your registration, we will send you additional details including building locations. Parents are not allowed to attend the session with their child, but are encouraged to enjoy the El Camino campus as they wait for child.
