On June 27th, a group of 40 high school students visited UCLA from the Moreno Valley College Upward Bound Math and Science Program.  They toured the newly renovated UCLA Meteorite Gallery and spoke to a student panel about physics and astronomy.  This visit was sponsored by AstronomyLive! and iPLEX.  Upward Bound coordinator Micki Clowney said of the experience: “The students thoroughly enjoyed themselves.  Everything from the tour of the gallery to the student panel to the mini tour to the Bruin Bear was memorable.  The students really enjoyed speaking to the undergraduate and graduate students to learn about their experiences.  THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!”
