We had a blast facilitating our flashlight soldering event during the entire school day at Seattle World School (SWS). Everyone had fun and went home with their own flashlight! Many thanks to all STEM Pals volunteers, SWS and UW MEM-C for making this happen. YES! This is our first ever STEM Pals-created in-person event! Here’s … Continue reading Science Day at Seattle World School: Soldering Flashlights [05/16/2022]
We volunteered to help facilitate the Clean Energy Institute’s Solar Derby demo at Hazen High School.
Via Women in ChemE, we performed the photosynthetic flotation demo. We started letting the students make their own “samples” (punching holes in spinach leaves and getting the air out using the syringes). The hands-on aspect really seemed to work well and had better engagement.
COVID-19 kept us from meeting each other and working together in person. So we decided to have a picnic outdoors! 😀
We ended our first quarter in action with a blast… and by bringing a reality check to blasts in movies (among other special effects and illusions). Great work everybody!
We were honored to see even more of 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. Impressive work, y’all!

This Cinco de Mayo, we worked on a basic introduction to simulations, variables and functions before trying to model the COVID-19 pandemic. We used a simple Python simulation (GIF below!) to try simulations out first-hand!
Our second event at the Eisenhower High School went by amazingly. We learnt a lot about Latin, clouds, historical scientists, banana radiation and orders of magnitude. Here’s to hoping our STEM Pals will not have (too many) tummy issues! xD
We are excited to announce that we completed our first ever event at the Eisenhower High School. Much thanks to Mrs. Driver and all STEM Pals for participating!
