STEM Boot Camps are led each semester by professors in the Natural Sciences Division. Their purpose is to help get you ready for the next class you’re taking by providing important review. They’re free but space is limited. Check out the flier below for more info:
Please join us on Monday 11/20 (4:15-5:15pm in Room 439) for some food and stress relief. We will host a potluck and science-themed Jeopardy game. Come hang out, have some snacks, and compete for prizes.
A number of you have expressed an interest in applying for research internships. For our regular meeting this Monday, Kim Lopez will be giving a presentation on internships and will then host a workshop on how to find them and successfully apply. Come use the computers in the lab or bring your laptop!
4:15pm in Room 439
A very exciting opportunity has come up for us to take a tour of the facility where they are currently working on the James Webb Space Telescope (Northrup Grumman in Redondo Beach). If you haven’t heard of this before, here is a short blurb about it from their website:
“The James Webb Space Telescope (sometimes called JWST or Webb) will be a large infrared telescope with a 6.5-meter primary mirror. The telescope will be launched from French Guiana in Spring 2019. JWST will be the premier observatory of the next decade, serving thousands of astronomers worldwide. It will study every phase in the history of our Universe, ranging from the first luminous glows after the Big Bang, to the formation of solar systems capable of supporting life on planets like Earth, to the evolution of our own Solar System. JWST will be a powerful time machine with infrared vision that will peer back over 13.5 billion years to see the first stars and galaxies forming out of the darkness of the early universe.”
The tour is free! However, you must be a US citizen to tour this facility and will be required to show a valid government ID (such as a driver’s license or passport). We will carpool from Fullerton College around 8am and the tour will be 9-10am. We can provide transportation so please let us know if you need a ride.
We look forward to seeing you!
Tuesday, October 31 at 4:30PM in RM 410!
Do not miss this… Project RAISE, the Science Club, and the Society of Women Engineers will all be there! Come meet other STEM majors, learn about undergraduate research opportunities, learn about transfer opportunities, and enjoy FREE FOOD! Costumes encouraged.
Dr. Matt Franzman, a chemist and criminalist for the LAPD, will be talking about his job and the unexpected path he took to get there.
We will also be revealing our T-shirt design and talking about the James Webb Space Telescope trip in November.
Hope to see you there! We will meet 4:15-5:15pm in Room 439.
CSUF is hosting a pumpkin launch on Saturday, Nov. 4 and we, at Fullerton College, think we can win this thing! The Society of Women Engineers and Science Club are teaming up to build a trebuchet that will kill the competition. There will be a planning meeting this Thursday at 4:45-5:45pm in Room 323. Everyone is welcome!
