Loyola at a Glance

Loyola students teach physics to local schoolchildren

May 4, 2012

In April, students from the Department of Physics at Loyola University New Orleans participated in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Challenge, a unique outreach event designed to work with children to explore science through hands-on experiments and exciting demonstrations.

Children from local schools gathered at Sarah T. Reed High School to participate in the event, which centered on an array of physics challenges, from footraces to engineering puzzles. In conjunction, six students from Loyola University performed science demonstrations that touched on a variety of topics, from nanotechnology to solar power. The Loyola students who volunteered for the event are Whitney Radosti, Riley Mayes, Douglas Alexander, William Duhe, Dustin Lindberg and Kingsley Hansen.

The event was sponsored by Vietnamese Initiatives in Economic Training, City Year and BP.
