Review for Youth Science Center, Hacienda Heights, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My first experience with Youth Science Center was when I was a child. My mother introduced me to Mr. and Mrs. Chong, and I was fascinated by all of the really "cool" science contraptions and displays in the Center. I was 8, that made a huge impression on my future career endeavors as a Science Teacher. I honestly believe that the experiences you have as a child help play a role in who you will become in the future. Being exposed to such fascinating treasures truthfully made a difference. I have had the pleasure to teach at the Youth Science Center for the past three years, and have LOVED every moment. I have had the opportunity to teach high interest, hands on, standards based, but FUN science! I have seen children be inspired and be creative through the use of technology, through building and creating. I cannot praise the Youth Science Center enough for inspiring and encouraging young minds. Kudos!

The Students are excited to learn, they are open to learning new concepts, and participating in daily activities! The people are amazing. Everyone is always making sure you're doing okay. I have never felt this cared for in a working environment! :)

Amazing. The student volunteers are willing and ready to jump in and help students out with activities and experiments. The Staff is outstanding. I have never seen a more cohesive staff, all working toward the same goal- "instruct, inform, and inspire!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
