Tech High Students recently participated in the fifth annual Bay Area Science Festival (Science Discovery Day) at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds. It is a Bay Area-wide event with displays at the fairgrounds, ATT park and an East Bay site. The Sonoma fair attracted 12 thousand visitors last year and 15 thousand were expected this year mostly students from 5 to 15 years of age and their parents. Tech High demonstrates DNA extraction from strawberries at four stations. This is the third year that we have exhibited in conjunction with BABEC/PROBE. Our students were wonderful teachers again this year and taught hundreds of wide-eyed kids.
Tech High senior engineering students were recently given a tour of the Golden Gate Bridge by engineers from the Golden Gate Transit Authority. Students were treated to a two hour tour of the engineering and design features as well as the major challenges and political history of this landmark. A big thanks to Gina Belforte, Vice Mayor of Rohnert Park for initiating this opportunity and to Justine Bock of the Golden Gate Transit Authority for organizing and leading the tour.
