Innovate Pasadena gives voice to the thinkers, inventors, and educators who make Pasadena great. During Connect Week we showcase the creativity and ingenuity that’s right here in our own backyard. We invite entrepreneurs, engineers, investors, scientists, educators, business people, designers, and students to unite and strengthen Pasadena’s innovation community through education and resource exchange.
The Local Group Astronomy Club of Santa Clarita, California has been providing educational outreach programs to schools, Scouts and the community since 1984. An estimated 6,000 children and adults look through our telescopes annually, many of whom are observing for the first time.
The club will be providing solar and nighttime telescopes at the Pasadena Astronomy Festival on October 22.
At the Pasadena Unified School District, we believe that every child can learn and succeed in the 21st century. PUSD students are prepared to be critical thinkers, creative problem-solvers and strong communicators.
Themed learning options are available for every age K-12 age group in dual language immersion; science, technology, engineering and math; and the visual and performing arts.
Partnerships with civic organizations, business and higher education create unparalleled opportunities to enhance the student's learning experience.
On Tuesday, October 16 at 6pm, PUSD is offering in a stargazing night at Normal Coombs Elementary School.
