Welcome to the 2018-19 Science Club!

Welcome! We are looking forward to a full year of odd projects and competitions. Our website is currently being updated but soon will have information on all competitions we participate in, FAQs, and more.

Things we are planning on doing this year:
-science-y bottle rockets
-making a terrarium with bugs and plants and maybe even fish
-putting bugs (species TBD) in an oxygen-rich environment to see if they grow larger over time
-science-y egg drop (not your average vanilla egg drop)
-an annual killifish never hurt anyone
-we are totally watching some cool movies
-club t-shirts!
& more! We can be quite ambitious, evidently.

Our first meeting is Thursday, September 20, from 2:30 to 3:30 in Room 136. We will have food and an explosion.

Short and sweet is my jam. Look forward to meeting you all on Thursday!

Meeting Notes 1/11/2018

2:20 PM - 3:30 PM
Adding Machine
Levi brought in a old victor adding machine.

Double the Fun
Two Presentations for the price of one!!!!!

The first one is our weekly Science in the News.
I think these images say it all.

Today the host of Science in the News, Laney, gave a presentation on the multitude of ways in which humans can die a horrible death including but not limited to radiation poisoning, asteroids, or a super volcano. In other news, there are devices that can detect melanoma (skin cancer) to detect it early on.

 This 2 for 1 deal also included a presentation on whales by Sonja. It was on the evolution that has led to modern day Cetaceans. Turns out, the predecessors of modern day Cetaceans had legs.

Techno Bowl is a fun event that will be at the University of Washington on February 24th. It is similar to Science Bowl but a lot more relaxed. There will be prizes and each member of the first place team will get a raspberry pi.

Meeting Notes 11/16/2017

2:20 PM - 3:30 PM
Presentation by Leonard
Turns out male mammoths died in sillier ways and more often than female mammoths did. There's no way that could be applicable to the human race. right?
Science Olympiad
Sorry to everyone who didn't make the team. Sonja had to make tough cuts to create our current Science Olympiad team roster.
This includes:
To Be Continued
Science Bowl
We asked everyone at the meeting if they would like to do Science Bowl and we came up with a rough idea of who would be in our 3 Science Bowl teams.

That's all for today's meeting. Hope to see you there at the next one.
