BEAM- Spring 2013. This week’s lesson plan session had an excellent turn out! Beam volunteers along with our visiting CSUN Beamsters created and raced their own rubber band powered cars! We sure hope the kids at the school sites we will soon visit will have as much fun as we did.
Beam mentors and students learned about the environmental effects of oil spills and worked as environmental engineers to create oil spill models and explore ways to clean up our generated oil spills. We worked in teams to discuss methods to clean up our simulated oil spill. We found cheesecloths (our sorbents) and pipettes (our vacuums) to do the best job!
Building Engineers and Mentors - UCLA (BEAM-UCLA) was created to provide K-12 students across the Los Angeles area with engaging activities that promote interest in science, technology, engineering and math. This organization was founded at UC Berkeley in 2008, and opened a new chapter at UCLA during the 2010-2011 school year.
