JJ Perez volunteers at Ysleta Elementary School
November 7, 2011

[image-62]JJ Perez recently took time out to volunteer at Ysleta Elementary in El Paso. "This was my fourth year presenting a science demonstration at the school for the last day of their 'Science Week.' They were really nice and presented me with a beautiful plaque," said Perez.

During his visit, Perez, who works as a standard test materials prep scientist in the WSTF Labs in Molecular Desorption and Analysis Laboratory, said, "I think it was a little over 100 in the audience of 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. I presented vacuum and liquid nitrogen experiments and discussed some physics, math and chemistry topics. I was there for about 5 hours. I also was able to eat with the kids while they presented all the science fair winners. They were all great!"
