Science Fair at Dual Language Middle School
January - February 2016
From January 5th through 14th, our chapter hosted 8th graders from Dual Language Middle School and worked with them to design and carry out experiments for their annual science fair projects. SFB members also volunteered as judges at the DLMS Science Fair in February.
Industry Career Discussion with Health Science Communications
October 14, 2015
Our chapter hosted an industry career discussion with Columbia alum Kenneth Ng, PhD, MSCTI from Health Science Communications. Dr. Ng discussed the transition from academia to health communications and we were joined by graduate students in Biological Sciences, Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Industrial Engineering & Operations Research, and Mechanical Engineering
Science Club at Dual Language Middle School
October 2015 - May 2015
Throughout the school year, our chapter is hosting monthly visits to Dual Language Middle School to teach the after-school science club. Our goal is to introduce hands-on activities to complement the subjects covered in their classes. So far we have focused on structure function relationships in the body and explored different methods of biomaterials fabrication, ranging from electrospinning to 3D printing. There is still time left in the school year if you are interested in volunteering -- please contact Dovina Qu to learn more.
