First graders from the Garden Villas Elementary School took a field trip to the University of Houston on Friday, April 5th to get a taste of what their college experience might look like if they decide to pursue careers in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields.

The students enjoyed activities ranging from a superconductivity demonstration to a dance-and-sing-along with a robot provided by the Cullen College's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Afterwards, the youngsters gathered together on the floor, sitting indian-style, to listen to a very special presentation by Dr. Bonnie Dunbar, former NASA astronaut and professor in the Cullen College's departments of mechanical and biomedical engineering.
