It's a Virtual Celebration!

Great to get together in our "Virtual Celebration" meeting with outstanding high school students in our our Upward Bound, CIDream, and Project Islas Program. What's most exciting is to hear them say how much they miss each other (and us). Maybe, the bright side to this otherwise difficult time is how we appreciate their strength, resilience and the camararderie that they have together.   #LNESC #UBCI #CIDream #LNESCOxnard #CIHS

Let's Grow with Google

The first of our Grow with Google (GwG) Applied Digital Skills Series. Students and parents are learning how to create email accounts, send emails, add contacts, pictures and more. They were most amazed about BCC and what it meant and how to add a signature line. Having fun watching them maneuver the internet.

Next workshop is this Saturday, Feb 15th at CI. Hope to see you there. #GrowWithGoogle#LULACPrograms#LULAC #LNESC #UBCI #CIDream #LNESCOxnard #CIHS

It was a memorable field trip at the top of the 2020 Spring school semester. Upward Bound and CIDream students had the opportunity to tour USC and visit the California Science Center. The campus was beautiful and historic with classic architecture. The weather was amazing. Then, we hoped over to the Science Center. OH MY DOG! Who knew dogs were so intelligent.  The exhibit was a simple celebration of dogs abilities and their keen sense to see, hear, smell, act, move and LOVE for human creatures. The Superpower Dogs 3d IMAX Documentary was just as remarkable. It showcased their extraordinary “superpowers”.

LULAC Youth had the opportunity to visit San Jose State University. Our next stop was The Tech Interactive. It is a globally renowned STEM wonder. The students build robots - Geremiah, Chad, Beetle, and The Cleaner 1000. In groups, students had a chance to use their own imagination and too critically think about the world we're moving into with AI (artificial intelligence) friends at their command. Who wants to waste time with TV when you can now have a robot buddy! There were so many exhibits and hands-on experiences including the earthquake simulator, the BioDesign Studio, BodyWorks and more.  We ended our visit viewing a Volcano video through iMax technology. We could almost feel the lava's heat through its brilliant colors and state of the art technology. The story of volcanos through one of the largest IMAX dome screens in the West was a powerful and most immersive movie experience we've ever had.
