The third annual Science Night at the LAC included music, science, technology and math activities and catered food.

Dan Sorto, 25, fire science major, said, “I went to the third floor of the D Building and saw some cool experiments like how carbon was formed from sugar when they heated it with some chemicals or how bananas foamed with hydrogen peroxide.”

The event was open to all science enthusiasts as well as people who were merely curious about what the Science Night entailed, giving an opportunity for many current and future students to see the facilities and resources available to them.

Keith Pollard, student worker, said, “This is my first year volunteering at this event, but I have volunteered in the past for other events at LBCC. I’m mostly working outside, but will go see the experiments when I get the chance.”

No event at LBCC goes without police supervision. Officer Boranm Heam, said, “I have supervised many events at LBCC. This event has been very peaceful, it is a college environment, people are here to learn and most people are aware of what the rules and regulations are.”
