Congratulations to the American Chemical Society (ACS) Club for winning not one, but two, awards this year!  The club won Outstanding Club of 2015.  This award "recognizes an organization that has contributed to the Stevenson Community through excellence in meeting the four foundations of civic engagement, education, personal development, and collaborative leadership."  The club was also awarded the Best Educational Program for the Chemistry Magic Show.  This award “salutes a program connected with the mission of the organization to educate the Stevenson University community on a particular topic.”  What a great end to such a fun and successful year!

The picture above was taken at the end of year lunch.  Club officers, Shelby Litz and Michele Collingsworth, are holding the plaques for the awards.

SU set a new Guinness Book world record by holding the largest exercise ball class- close to 400 participants!  The event raised almost $2400 which is being split between two charities- the Wounded Warrior Project and Wishes for Warriors.  Students, faculty and staff from the School of the Sciences participated and had a good time.  

Students in Dr. Tracey Mason's Instrumental Analysis course served as judges for 4th and 5th grade science fair projects at Gunpowder Elementary in Baltimore County.  The elementary school students were excited to share their projects, and our SU science majors were happy to share in that excitement!

Students, faculty and staff celebrated Earth Day at the 2015 Greenfest!  There were tables and exhibits about green chemistry (by the ACS student group), buidling Reefballs to protect the Chesapeake Bay, animal protection, beekeeping, and many others.  A good time was had by all and everyone learned a lot!

Prospective students visited campus on Saturday to learn about our science and math programs at SU.  They were given the opportunity to participate in a laboratory experience, learning how potato enzymes work using spectroscopic techniques, or participating in a fingerprinting exercise; to learn about the department, the faculty, and the exciting programs and courses we offer; and to visit a fair with tables showcasing our clubs, our alumni and our majors.  Students and their parents had a chance to ask questions and see what the School of the Sciences at SU is all about!
