STEM Club at Dual Language Middle School

November 2016 -

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. Topics we are exploring this year include microbes, fossils, cells, and the human body. There is still time left in the school year if you are interested in volunteering -- please contact Dovina Qu to learn how you can get involved!
