Science Club

CLUB DESCRIPTION

Welcome to Science Club! Our goal is to promote an interest in science by performing exciting experiments and labs. Topics that are explored include biology, chemistry, and physics. Students will be able to put their knowledge to the test by performing hands-on projects. We will also watch interesting videos centered around STEM, as well as discuss modern advancements.

Service Project

Our service project is volunteering at NC4GK on Saturday December 7, 2019 from 9:00 AM - We will be sorting and packaging donated clothing. The clothes will be distributed at an upcoming Toy & Joy Christmas event.

Science club constitution

Article I: NAME: Science Club

Article II:    PURPOSE: The objectives of the Science Club are to promote an interest in science, to encourage critical thinking, and to enhance knowledge in a variety of sciences. Topics that will be covered include, but are not limited to, biology, chemistry, physics, and earth science. These topics will be explored through insightful and enjoyable activities, involving labs, experiments, building projects, and more. Students will be able to communicate their ideas and learn essential skills in teamwork. Additionally, the curriculum of the Science Club will align with the courses offered at Dana Hills High School, allowing students to help each other with classwork, while partaking in a variety of fun activities.

Article III:    ELIGIBILITY: All students will be allowed membership into the Science Club. No special achievement is required. The Science Club shall not limit eligibility on the basis of actual or perceived race, ethnicity, gender, age, color, disability, gender identity, gender expression, nationality, religion, sex, and sexual orientation or association with a person or a group with one or more of these actal or perceived characteristics.

Article IV:    ELECTION OF OFFICERS: Club officer elections will be held once every year. Students interested in running for an officer position will need to fill out a form stating their name, the position they are running for, and any qualifications they may have. A ballot with the candidates will be printed out and distributed at the next meeting. All club members will then vote for one person in each position (members can not vote for themselves) and those with the highest number of votes will receive the positions.

Article V:   RESPONSIBILITIES: The president of the club will be in charge of supervision and operation of the club. They must obtain/fill out any required documentation and approvals regarding the club activities and events, as well as attend the ICC Meetings. The vice president is responsible for communicating with members about the dates and locations of activities. They will also fill in for the president if they are absent. The secretary will be in charge of recording meeting minutes and turning them in. The treasurer is responsible for the club’s money and keeping records of it, including the financial reports.

Article VI:    REMOVAL OF OFFICERS: Officers may be removed after failure to attend 3 or more meetings, with the exception of vital occurrences, such as funerals and serious illness, or upon contact with the president or advisor (more than a week ahead of time). Furthermore, an officer may be removed if they violate school rules or if they do not fulfill their responsibilities. The president and advisor have the ability to remove an officer and will notify them before or after the meeting.

Article VII:    PHILOSOPHY OF FUNDRAISING: The Science Club will rely primarily on school equipment and donations. However, if additional money is needed, there may be a few fundraising events. Fundraising will be educational and viewed as an opportunity to teach the public about science. Such events can include having a science camp for elementary school students and selling slime after doing a demonstration. The Science Club will spend its money on lab equipment, building supplies/kits, and snacks.

Article VIII:    LIABILITY: The Science Club will follow the same procedures as the science classes at DHHS. A list of rules and safety expectations will be given to students on the first meeting, outlining the locations of safety equipment and what to do in case of emergencies. Students and a parent or guardian will need to sign the form, stating they have read and understood all the rules. Any violation of the rules will result in suspension from activities. All activities will be held on campus, so safety equipment will be in roughly the same places as students are accustomed to.

Article IX:    AMENDMENTS: The Science Club will have a 2/3 -majority vote of members present to amend its constitution. All amendments will be cleared through the club’s cabinet.

Article X:    SERVICE PROJECTS: The Science Club will volunteer at an after-school science club for elementary or middle school students. Additionally, the Science Club will help set up for school or community science fairs. All club members will be encouraged to participate in community service projects, and club officers will be in charge of organizing them.


Article XI:    CLUB INTEGRATION: The Science Club will solicit participation in its events by sending weekly reminders to members, via the Remind app and email. These massages will alert members of meetings, community service projects, and fundraising events. Members who participate in events will have the opportunity to lead future activities, encouraging students to participate as much as possible. To avoid excluding or isolating students, the Science Club will always encourage students to share their ideas. New members will always be encouraged to join and no students will be excluded by any means. To foster integration between students at DHHS, the Science Club will occasionally hold activities that are not as science-oriented. This will encourage all students at DHHS to participate, share their ideas, and meet new people.
