We need volunteers for field trips, to give presentations to the kids at school, or to present an evening science lecture to the Roosevelt High School community. In addition, the American Association for the Advancement of Science (publisher of the journal Science) is looking for volunteers for STEM programs in the Puget Sound area. Details can be found by clicking here.
Please let us know if you can help! Send an email to either of the two co-chairs of the Roosevelt Science Boosters, Peter Small (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Justine Barton (email@example.com).
Let us know what other resources you would like to see made available to the students, teachers or parents. In the meantime, click on the links in the boxes below to see the resources we currently have available.
Upcoming Science in Society Lectures
The next lecture will be Thursday, March 19th at 7:30 pm in the library. Please come with your student(s) and learn about two exciting projects from the UW's Applied Physics Lab and School of Oceanography. First, APL Systems Engineer Dana Manalang will talk about her work on the UW's Offshore Cabled Ocean Observatory. This ambitious project uses remote controlled instruments and video deployed on the deep ocean floor, to monitor events off our coast real-time. Second, Dr. Giora Proskurowski, UW Oceanographer, will talk about his many months on research vessels in the North Pacific and North Atlantic monitoring plastics in our oceans.
For information on these projects, please check out the links below:
All of the Science and Society lectures will take place at 7:30 PM in the RHS library. Watch this space for announcements regarding upcoming lectures for the 2014-2015 school year. Our final lecture of the year is currently scheduled for Thursday April 30th.
