Editor’s note: This is the second installment of a two-part series about the workshop.

Besides a wealth of hands-on projects local youth can participate in at the City of Watsonville’s Environmental Science Workshop in Marinovich Park, the free, drop-in program also serves as a broad-based science class.

The Science Teach program trains high school students, who are supported by a lead teacher, to present hands-on science projects at eight elementary school-based after-school programs.

Science Teach is funded by individual schools’ federal after-school grants and other small grants, Environmental Science Workshop coordinator Curt Gabrielson said. Projects include a working model of an eyeball, miniature catapults, blinking Christmas light displays, magnetic spinning machines and hand-launched helicopters.
