STEM Sunday

STEM Sunday is an effort aiming to complement our Saturday programs in math and computer science with a sampling of experiences in the other components of STEM.  STEM Sunday is not organized in full-season parallel streams distinguished as ability groups; usually there will be a single activity or clusters of activities addressing a particular STEM topic.  The level of that activity will be determined by the instructor and may vary from one activity to the next.  Usually, we will try to make the topics of a sufficiently general nature that students from a spread of grade levels can benefit rather than targeting a particular grade.

We set this program for Sunday afternoons to avoid conflict with our Saturday programs in math and computer science, making it possible for students who wish to participate in STEM Sunday to participate in those programs also, if desired.

As with the rest of SDMC's activities, there is no cost to participate.  At this time, we do not require that STEM Sunday participants be full, regular SDMC members; until space constraints require that we impose limitations, non-members may attend.  However, it IS necessary that every student who participates in an ongoing manner must be accounted for in our participant and contact list and the parent of every such student must complete a waiver form.  This can be handled on site.

Location:      Applied Physics and Mathematics Building, Room(s) 2402, B402A and/or B412 (basement)
Date:            Sundays (check the SDMC Master Calendar for specific schedule of topics)
Time:            1:30pm - 3:30pm

The topics and levels of STEM Sunday activities will generally vary from week to week.  However, in this 2018-2018 season, we plan several topic clusters:

Introduction to Chemistry, led by Mihai Azimioara

Basic Electricity for Electronics, led by Hema Sampath

Programming Using Arduino, led by John Y. Lee

For information about these activities, please see their respective pages and the STEM Sunday track on the SDMC Master Calendar.
