University Students inspire children to study science at Science Carnival in Oxnard

About 2,000 elementary and middle schools students enjoyed scientific experiments on Saturday evening during a free Science Carnival in Oxnard.

The annual event on the Thurgood Marshall Elementary School playground is made possible by students from Cal State University Channel Islands in Camarillo.

The future scientists wore white lab coats as they learned about chemistry, physics and archeology.

Students experimented with fire and dry ice, dissected a cow’s eye, and walked across a goop called Oobleck.

University President Erica Beck even got into the act by prancing through the goop that won’t dirty your feet.

While youngsters learned to love science, current and future teachers learned how to make teaching science fun.
