Review for Oak Crest Institute of Science, Pasadena, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been volunteering at Oak Crest for approximately 3 months. I love that they have given me the opportunity to learn and gain the experience in various analytical techniques that are usually required in today's job market. Many times one graduates understanding the theory but lacking the hands on knowledge of the instrumentation needed to find a job. This organization provides the means for students to have hands on knowledge of what it really is like to do be a scientists addressing questions that are truly important to society. There is no better way to learn than to be surrounded by a well equipped lab and people who are really interested in teaching. Research can be difficult but having a good group to work with and projects that are important makes the "work" worth while.

Role:  Volunteer & Working on a project to use carbon dioxide (a green house gas) to produce useful chemical compounds.
