CTEP Biotechnology Students from Harbor High Experience STEM Zone at AT&T Pro-Am

Santa Cruz County Science & Engineering Fair coordinator and Harbor High School Biotechnology teacher Nehal Pfeiffer and the Harbor High Biotechnology class went to the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am golf tournament where they got to experience the Pebble Beach Chevron STEM Zone. Hosted in a pavilion located on the 18th green of the Pebble Beach golf course itself, the STEM Zone allowed our students to participate in a variety of hands-on science demonstrations. From thermal imagining to Bernoulli’s principle, these activities showed students fun science in action.
