Major STEM Pals Reveal at UW MEM-C Conference in Friday Harbor Labs [09/(06-08)/2022]

We are privileged to have had the opportunity to officially introduce ourselves to the broader UW MEM-C community at their annual All Hands Conference in Friday Harbor Labs. This exposure to the membership of our primary funding source and endorser is bound to increase engagement (as we have already seen with new interest in our activities).

Some activities of note:

  • Poster presentation on STEM Pals and our activities (we gave some swag out!)
  • Meeting including MEM-C Director, other staff/faculty, and faculty at the University of Hawaii (who we are collaborating with on an upcoming project with native Hawaiian schools). SUPER COOL.
  • A STEM Pals-specific segment during a broader presentation on ongoing outreach endeavors

Many thanks to all those who were involved, including several from our team!

Science Day at Seattle World School: Soldering Flashlights [05/16/2022]

We had a blast facilitating our flashlight soldering event during the entire school day at Seattle World School. Everyone had fun and went home with their own flashlight!
Many thanks to all STEM Pals volunteers, Mr. Yi and UW MEM-C for making this happen.

YES! This is our first ever STEM Pals-created in-person event! Here’s to the several more to come! ♪┏(・o・)┛♪┗ ( ・o・) ┓♪

Science Project Presentations I [05/12/2021]

We were honored to see our comrades in Eisenhower High School present their science projects to us, and answer our questions as we judged their work based off a rubric used for science fair projects. Good job!

Below is a picture symbolizing their projects. Spoiler: Highlight the invisible/white text directly below this line using your mouse.

The image is of Sailor Mars with a mask. One project was about growing Vitamin K-yielding crops on Mars, and the other was about the impact of face masks on the ocean.
