In the physics lab the Lightning Ball looked like the centerpiece for a séance. Down the hall in the entomology lab kids looked through microscopes at bugs while a giant green stink bug filled a TV monitor.

All the while, a cadre of Bellevue College science students in chemistry and physics rooms stood sentinel, ready to explain their research displayed on science-fair-style posters.

BC Science Division's first "Passport to STEM" (science, technology, engineering and math) open house on Saturday was well-attended, fun and informative. The free, public event showcased division students' hard work and zeal for the sciences.
