GLENDALE — A small flame inched closer and closer to a hydrogen-filled balloon as about 40 children stared attentively. As the balloon popped, out came a booming, blazing fireball, making the children start and gasp. "I felt the noise even though I covered my ears," said 11-year-old Mason Puu, a fifth-grade student at Coolidge Elementary School in San Gabriel. Lisa Fridman, assistant professor of chemistry at Glendale Community College, was demonstrating a chemical reaction for the students as part of the college's latest Cimmarusti Science Center program.

Darleene Barrientos As they dipped spoons into sandwich bags full of homemade ice cream as they walked through Dunsmore Elementary School's crowded cafeteria, 6-year-olds Megan Ellison and Brigitta Call looked for their next experiment. "It was not hard," Megan said, referring to how the girls made the ice cream. "All I had to do was shake it and make it cold." Brigitta didn't like the experience as much.
