In celebration of Earth Day, East Los Angeles Community College invited multiple organizations and companies focusing on renewable energy sources and improving the environment to help educate students on science based careers. Aside from CiSoft, the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD), Chevron, Southern California Edison, and many other groups appeared at the gathering, showing students how they could also help and care for the environment for the future. CiSoft focused on plastics and the importance of recycling properly, teaching students how to recycle and what should or should not be placed in the blue bin. More than 1000 students from both primary and secondary schools attended the event.
CiSoft has a long relationship with ELAC and also participated in the ELAC Summer Academy on July 18th, 2011 targeting MESA (Math Engineering Science Achievement) students transitioning from high school to junior college. Students learned about careers in Petroleum & Chemical Engineering, Computer Science, and Geology.
