This is the first year my 9 yr old daughter attended the YSC camp. One of our friends, an engineer, recommended our daughter attend the camp. My daughter participated in three weeks of full time classes. She loved every minute and most importantly was exposed to various genres of science ie physics, engineering, math, biology, etc. The teachers were able to inspire her and every day she explained in great detail the things she learned. One particular episode stands out; In her rocketry class there were 2 girls and 9 boys and they had a contest, boys against girls on whose rocket could fly the farthest. Each team had 4 attempts and my daughter's rocket won every time. She told me she felt the pressure as the other girls rocket didn't fly very far but she said "I can do this" and she did. Never in the 30 years of classes had a girls team won all four attempts! It taught her to not be afraid and to believe in oneself. As a professional in the science field, I am very pleased with the program, recommended it to several of my girl scout troop girls. We will participate in the program next year.

Jes and Ches Mom,

YSC is a magical place, it is the place to be for all ages because there are so many exciting programmes such as the tour to 3D printing, Museum in a college, RoseBowl, Flying, tour to a pharmaceutical company, visit to model airplace manufacturer.......I believe most of
you do not know what I am talking because all these trips are so exclusive and specially arranged by the dedicated volunteers.

We bought a very special chemist from Japan to one of the trip to the La Puente Waste Management Plant and he was impressed. Though Japan has the very advanced wastage management system and they also organised trips for the school students for visit but the scope is very limited. Visitors are only allowed to sit in the meeting area and listen to some talk and see the models. As for our trip, we were allowed to get out to the waste pool and guided through the whole sterilization process by an engineer from the plant. At the end,m the kids were guided to see the pure and clean water going back to the creek!

A very success alumni from YSC also claimed that YSC is the best programme for him when he was young and he will send his son to this programme in the future as well!!

Every summer my sons attend the Youth Science because they look forward in building things. They are the ones who remind me not to forget to register them in these classes. They classes are not only educational and life changing, they are fun and exciting! We love the Youth Science Center!

My two boys, 9 and 10, have been attending Youth Science Center classes for the past several summers. It's one of their favorite summer activities. The fact that they look forward and enjoy an academic based summer activity thrills me. Youth Science Center classes are not only fun but the kids learn so much and open their minds to the world of science. The instructors are skillful and exciting. The volunteers are friendly and inviting. We love Youth Science Center!

The Youth Science Center is an excellent resource for students and parents. The center itself is located at my kids' school, Wedgeworth Elementary, and they visit it all the time. But even better, the YSC provides summer school classes, which my kids attend every year.

My students love coming to the YSC. I enjoy having them learn and explore. We enjoy the computers and crafts, too. It is always a pleasure going to the YSC for field trips with my classes. I have taken second grades, first grades, and kindergarten classes. It is such a pleasure working with Ron and Judy Chong and their staff. Lorene Shannon Wing Lane Elementary

Whenever the planetary dome comes to our school, my students get very excited. It provides my students with an experience they would never get otherwise. After the presentation, they truly have a better understanding of the the solar system and all of its parts. The planetary dome is a great way to get the students involved. The Youth Science Center presenter is always highly knowledgeable and the kids really like her. They provide my students with an outstanding educational experience, and ask for nothing in return. I am truly grateful to YSC for all they do.

This program is amazing! It brings the planetarium to the school. Our student love participating in a high tech program. The educators are phenomenal and very well informed. They are able to answer any question that comes at them. They are knowledgeable about our state standards and relate their program to meet our standards. From the minute the students enter the dome they are taken into the solar system. They have the experience of seeing our universe up close and personal. Our classroom lessons become alive which makes this well worth every minute. Thanks Youth Center for providing such a professional program that relates directly to our state standards.

The Youth Science Center's summer classes were always highlay anticipated by my four children every year. They usually attended a class every week of the summer sessions. One child in particular loved science and ended up with a career in the medical field; he is now a pediatrician. The YSC classes nurtured his early interest in anything connected with life sciences. Of course his favorite classes were those connected with dissecting!

The Great!
