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!

In honor of Halloween, chemistry professor, Dr. Jeremy Burkett gave a fun and informative presentation titled “Vampires: Fact or Fiction?”. The presentation discussed biochemical, psychological, and sociological phenomena that could have led to the legends about vampires which exist in every culture. Student and faculty laughed along with the logical, though exaggerated, tales among townspeople that contributed to the image of vampires that we still use today.

Maybe next Halloween, we will be lucky enough to get a lecture on werewolves!
