Aera helps Bakersfield students learn all about STEM at Buena Vista Museum Summer Science Camps
Bakersfield students spent the summer making ice cream, watching volcanoes erupt out of soda bottles and hanging out with prehistoric creatures while exploring science through art and hands-on activities at Buena Vista Museum of Natural History’s Summer Science Camps.
Bakersfield first through sixth graders explored sharks, kitchen science, dinosaurs and worked as junior detectives over four weeks of camps, made possible in part by a $10,000 donation from Aera Energy.
“We are very thankful for Aera’s support of Summer Science Camp at Buena Vista Museum of Natural History and Science,” said Koral Hancharick, executive director of the Buena Vista Museum. “The museum relies on community support to be able to bring educational programs to our community. Our goal is to give youngsters opportunities to explore science, with hopes that they might find a STEM career path in the future.”
“Aera is more than an energy producer working to help California meet its bold climate goals, we’re committed to helping local kids explore STEM fields that could spark an interest STEM careers in the future,” said Aera’s External Affairs Manager Janea’ Benton. “These children could be our teachers, scientists, geologists, engineers and energy workers of the future, so we love helping make it fun for them!”
