Science Night 11/3

The last Science Night for the Fall Semester is taking place at Bob & Betty Courtway Middle School on Thursday, 11/3, from 5:30- 7:30 pm. Different student groups from CNSM, including the STEM Residential College, STEMteach, Pre-Med and Biology Clubs, Fish and Wildlife, and many more, will be sharing science with the community!

Science night is an opportunity for school children and their families to participate in a broad range of scientific activities.  These activities aim to spark interest in science by exposing children to the importance of science in our communities, the enjoyment and exploration found in science careers, and simple scientific concepts.  This CNSM outreach project is coordinated by Dr. Zaida Gomez-Cramer in the Biology Department.
