Welcome to the Physical Science Department

The Los Medanos College physical science department is a combination of astronomy, chemistry, engineering, physical science, and physics.


Our faculty offices are located in the second floor of the Los Medanos main campus science building in the hallway of offices which is next to the elevator, except for the two full-time chemistry teachers' offices which are next to their lab rooms. Our part-time (adjunct) faculty office is in the office hallway, room SC2-221.

The physical science floor is also home to the MESA center (SC2-202), which is across the second floor lobby from the elevator. Our office hallway is currently where you can find some of the offices of the LMC business department. And this is the location of the office of the MESA program director (SC2-211), Carole Hernandez, and the office of the STEM grant (SC2-213), occupied by Margie Ahola.


The overall physical science department chair is Scott Cabral, who teaches astronomy; but, the faculty who are in charge of the other disciplines are


Jeanne Bonner--physics

Kurt Crowder----engineering, physical science
