Tri-Beta members present at Bay Area Science Festival

Six members of the Dominican’s Tri-Beta Honor Society presented at North Bay Science Discovery Day on November 1 at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa.

Tri-Beta president Elizabeth Rice, Serafina Tulioc, Carla Gallevo, Corrine Ow, Victoria Pena and Janessa Cariaga along with their instructor Tyler Johnson were among the 90 presenters participating in the fourth annual Bay Area Science Festival, a 10-day transbay event which attracts exhibitors from local high school and colleges including Stanford University and UC-Berkeley.

Discovery Day is the biggest attraction with interactive exhibits at AT&T Park in San Francisco and at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa. A crowd of approximately 30,000 attended the event at AT&T Park while about 10,000 students and their families visited exhibits in Santa Rosa.

The Dominican project, entitled “How Do Your Senses Work Together,” featured candy, such as jelly beans, as a way to determine how taste, smell and vision work together.

The event was free and open to the public.
