The following is a list of exciting events we have been made aware of that students may enjoy:
April 6-7, 2018
Registration is open NOW. Entry forms are due or must be postmarked by March 14th, 2018.
Western Washington University
How do fuel cells and electric cars operate? How can industrial reactions be designed to use less energy and more environmentally-friendly chemicals? Chemistry faculty members Professors Steven Emory and Elizabeth Raymond will explore these questions using a series of dramatic chemical demonstrations combined with scientific explanations designed for children in grades 4 – 8. Professors Emory and Raymond will be assisted by students from Western Washington University’s Student Chapter of the American Chemical Society. This program is part of the College of Science and Engineering’s Wizards@Western youth science lecture series.
St. Paul’s Academy
St. Paul’s Academy has organized a regional fair to provide Whatcom County students in grades K-12 the opportunity to participate in a local juried event. It is too late to participate this year, but this would be a great opportunity to go check it out for participation next year, or just for fun!
Bellingham Technical College
Several upcoming “Career Day” opportunities:
For Welding Fab Week, Welding Technology program students will participate on three- to five-member teams, using scrap metal to create sculptures or creative fabrications inspired by the theme “Something for the Backyard Garden.” The community and campus are invited to visit Morse Center anytime between 10 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. each day to see what is going on, and cheer on their favorite teams. Safety glasses will be required.
During the week, the sculptures will be in the fabrication area of the welding shop in Morse Center. Visitors may need to wait for a viewing space to open up as there is limited access for large groups, and there will be a lot of activity going on in a small area.
