Portola students were electrified today

Portola hosted Lawrence Hall of Science Wizard’s Lab festival today in the El Cerrito Community Center main hall. Students went from station to station investigating different physical science models and demonstrations.  They got a chance to play around with magnets, pendulums, rolling racers. They learned about various aspects of electricity, and different forces of motion. The spinning platform, the Van de Graaf Generator, and the “Shocker” were very popular.

Thanks to the following people for assisting the students:

Yoko Morita, Romy Douglass, Mike Mason, Yokiko Miller, Eric Miller, Lisa Masunaga, Ying Tsu Loh, Anita Ko, Julie Yamashita, Susan Martin, Valerie Snider, Carlota Jimenez, Michael Yamauchi.

Special thanks to Mr. Bob Fabini for sending over his students to help us out today. Jocelyn Strauss, Laila Fawzi, Courtney Williams, Stephanie Lipscombe, Dzidi Djugba, Rachel Graup, Xochitl Hidalgo, Lindsey Mixer, and Hannah Banks were on hand to help demonstrate their stations.
