Flaming bears were a big hit
On behalf of Cobb School, I’d like to thank the Umpqua Community College Science Department and the Roseburg Fire Department for participating in our recent Science Fair and Olympiad.
UCC sent science professors and assistants to conduct many exciting experiments, like the Flaming Gummy Bear, and helped our students understand how chemicals work.
The fire department was asked to supervise our science activities involving fire, but they went above and beyond that request. They gave a talk about fire safety, as well as a first-hand look at the fire truck and how it functions. They also helped us with our egg drop off by using the fire truck ladder, and went through our classrooms handing out pencils and stickers.
We really appreciate how UCC and the Roseburg Fire Department infused excitement into our Science Fair and Olympiad!
