DACC Elementary Science Day provides hands-on activities

Eighty-eight elementary students got their hands dirty performing experiments and learning the anatomy and function of several body systems during the seventh annual Elementary Science Day at DACC.

DACC science faculty and elementary science teachers and parents from Clyde W. Tombaugh Elementary School worked with students and modeled proper laboratory procedures and laboratory safety while presenting hands-on activities.

?It is never too early to get students involved and excited about science and work in the lab,? said Ratna Pankayatselvan. ?It gives our faculty great satisfaction and happiness to share knowledge with these young children.

?We want to instill a strong interest in science and hope these students will choose a STEM career when they are ready,? she added.

Students identified the ethnicity and gender of various human skulls, used iPads to see how the human heart works, learned about different organs, identified a mystery powder and learned how to make slime.

Pankayatselvan is the program director of the Science Department, which provides classes for all allied health degrees and awards the associate of science degree. A variety of classes help students become proficient in laboratory procedures and science knowledge from courses such as anatomy, physiology, chemistry, human biology and microbiology.

?We want our students to have an opportunity to see the possibilities for post-high school education,? said Bernadine Cotton of Tombaugh Elementary School. ?This activity emphasizes math and science and gives students the opportunity to enjoy these subjects.?
