Mr. McNERNEY. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to recognize Liberty High
School in Brentwood, California. Liberty High School was the recipient
of the Lawrence Livermore National Security's (LLNS) Community Gift
Program for the school's AP Environmental Science and Calculus Classes.
These classes engage students in science through a water quality
monitoring project that allows students to sample, analyze, and
interpret water quality data for Marsh Creek.
I also want to recognize the World of Wonders Science Museum in Lodi, California, which also was a recipient of the LLNS Community Gift Program. This museum offers hands-on, science-based exhibits and programs to disadvantaged schools within San Joaquin County.
Engaging young people in science, technology, math, and education programs is key to ensuring that the United States remains a world leader in technology advancements and innovation. We must challenge our children intellectually and find ways to keep them interested in making our world a better place.
It is in the classroom, the home, and our community that children are inspired to learn and explore. Liberty High School and the World of Wonders Science Museum represent what can be accomplished when all partners involved work together.
I urge my colleagues to join me in recognizing Liberty High School and the World of Wonders Science Museum for earning a competitive grant and for the work they do with children in our community.
