6th graders from Blanche Pope Elementary School came to Chaminade to see what it’s like to be a college student. Participating in the College For Every Student (CFES) program, they toured the campus and spent time in a science teaching lab doing a simple motor experiment.
Under the guidance of Physics students, research staff and professors, they experimented with current and electrical fields to design and build a simple motor. With each failed attempt, students learned how to modify the next design to eventually create a working motor. Success is sweet after working hard for it.
At the end of the visit, we were honored to receive an Oli Mahalo from the students. Kumu Kahoa, Chaminade’s Cultural Engagement Specialist responded back with an oli and words of gratitude.
It was a wonderful day at Chaminade University.
