Through Science Alliance, you are not only able to gain insights into many science-related careers, but also form new relationships with people. These relationships form our team today, and help us overcome many obstacles. Through this blog, we hope to showcase our progress into our projects and perceptions into our life. Science Alliance is a club devoted to exploring different sectors of science through project-based learning. We participate many competitions through which students build projects and learn new topics to compete with students in other schools. In addition, we participate in volunteering and fundraising. With our club students can further their knowledge of science and be more involved in their community.This club participates in many events that include but are not limited to Science Olympiad, SciZone, and MIT Think. We are a motivated team high school and middle school members
The leadership for 2019-2020!
Gumdrops and toothpicks! Sci.Zone
Children attending the Sci.Zone session are beginning to build their structures from gumdrops and toothpicks after learning about how to keep structures stable!
Learning all about plants! -Sci.Zone
Students attending a Sci.Zone take a break from learning about the movement of water in plants to draw their own representations of flowers. Very fun!
Gumdrops and Toothpicks Assembled! Sci.Zone
The end product! This part of the community is the huge house where gumdrop people stay in. It has a garden and every single amenity! Creative!
Is it a solid or liquid?
