The Youth Science Center in Hacienda Heights received a major grant of $10,000 from Southern California Edison recently.
Science Center President and CEO Ling-Ling Chang said the money will be used to support programs. This is the fourth year Edison awarded a grant to the local center.
Rick Meza of Edison sponsored the Hacienda Heights group, while Teri Malkin wrote the grant application. The Youth Science Center is a non-profit organization that helps kids adults to discover the excitement of science and technology.
The group just finished its popular summer science classes, which were held at Wedgeworth Elementary School in Hacienda Heights, and at Fairgrove Academy and Del Valle Elementary School in La Puente.
