Four promising young scientists from the Alameda Community Learning Center (ACLC) participated in the Golden Gate Science, Technology, Engineerying and Mathmatics (STEM) Fair and three received awards on Saturday, March 23, in Sausalito. Aidan Gleason, Michael Pham, Katherine Supremo and Emma Willoughby all qualified to attend the Golden Gate event by winning a first place ribbon at ACLC’s annual Science Fair, which was judged by UC Berkeley graduate students in December.
No TV or cell phones for Alameda Scouts this weekend, instead the kids were all breaking a sweat. Both days a group of Eagle Scout hopefuls hammered and sanded with power tools in the process of making three large redwood planter boxes for Buena Vista United Methodist Church. The boxes will be displayed in front of the church located on Buena Vista Avenue between Park and Oak streets.
