Science Ambassadors Trevor Henry, Anusha Sulladmath and Shaliza Ismaili amaze Gililland Elementary third-grader Fred Tshitoko with their “magic” science show. The UT Arlington students immersed flowers in liquid nitrogen to demonstrate what happens to living organisms when they’re frozen. The College of Science recently received a $50,000 grant from the ExxonMobil Foundation to continue the ExxonMobil Science Ambassador Program, which has put on more than 250 shows for nearly 20,000 area elementary, middle and high school students since October 2007.
