The Department of Chemistry is preparing to host its annual Science Day on February 26, 2019. The event is free and open to elementary, middle and high school students in the Huntsville area, including students who are home-schooled. Last year, over 400 students participated in the day of scientific discovery and hands-on experiments that bring textbook learning to life. Science Day is a free event due to sponsorship of the Alabama Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation Program (ALSAMP). The organization was established to increase the quality and quantity of underrepresented minority students completing baccalaureate degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). This diverse alliance includes Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), public and private institutions, and research and teaching institutions to boost a new era of cooperation as the alliance seeks to increase the achievement for all ALSAMP students.
Teachers are encouraged to bring their students to one of the two hour sessions. To reserve a two hour block call Mrs. Jackson in the Chemistry Department at (256) 726-7112. The event will start at 8:30 am and end at 2:30 pm. For additional information, contact Dr. LaiHing at firstname.lastname@example.org. Transportation may be provided if needed.
The scholarship is being established at Oakwood University in memory of George Floyd and to honor his life by supporting students pursuing higher education in preparation for a life of service. To donate to this fund visit https://give.oakwood.edu/george-floyd-memorial-scholarship/ .
