Chemistry and Science Faculty Lindsey Jones, Michelle Foss and Dawn Ward participated in the Ingenuity Project event that recently took place at the Brown Advisory building, where Dr. Ward served on a STEM careers panel. Stevenson is a sponsor of this program, which works to identify and provide advanced instruction for gifted students in grades 6-12 in the Baltimore City Public School system. The faculty attended the Innovators' Tea and had the opportunity to meet female students who are participating in the program at the high school level. There the students have the opportunity to network and make contacts with invited female professionals in STEM fields. 

The Fine School of the Sciences Summer Science Camp is happening now! Rising 6th, 7th and 8th graders participate in hands-on activities in robotics, biochemistry, environmental science, anatomy, astronomy and physics all week long. Activities culminate on Friday with a science scavenger hunt, water rockets, the ping pong fountain and more.  If you missed out this summer, be sure to like and follow the SOS Facebook page to receive a reminder when registration opens for next summer!

Dr. Tracey Mason participated in a 5th grade career day fair at Gunpowder Elementary in Baltimore County. She answered students' questions about her career as a Professor of Chemistry. Students were curious to know which subjects they are taking in school would help with this career. They guessed science and math were important, but were surprised to learn how important writing and communication were in science. 

The Stevenson University School of the Sciences hosted it's 2nd annual Spring Spectacular on April 26th. It was held on the North lawn of the Manning Academic Center and involved science demonstrations, logic puzzles and games, liquid nitrogen ice cream and lots of fun. The highlight of the day was hands down the ping pong fountain. 

 

For the second year in a row, the ACS Club performed a Chemistry Magic Show as part of the Maryland STEM Festival.  The standing room only crowd loved every minute of the event- the visiting children were captivated with the experiments that were performed and laughed at the chemistry jokes.  A great time was had by all and we look forward to doing this again next year!
