BE A SCIENTIST NIGHT: December 6th, 2013

Throughout the Fall and Spring Semester, SUPER-M and various volunteers visit the Institute for Human Services (IHS) weekly to engage the homeless children with educational math and science activities. Be a Scientist Night is an annual event celebrating this partnership between IHS and SUPER-M, growing each year through additional partnerships with the Graduate Women in Science, Institute for Astronomy, Center for Microbial Oceanography: Research and Education, and many other participating groups. Through a variety of entertaining STEM activities including Lego robotics, air rockets, marine acoustics, and others, homeless families and the Oʻahu community experience the "edgy" side to science and math while learning about the exciting possibilities STEM fields offer everyone.

 

 

Donations are always appreciated and welcome. In particular, IHS seeks diapers, disinfectant wipes, and children's clothing. Monetary donations for this event go towards food for the homeless and the items previously mentioned.
