In 2012, our STEM members were asked to volunteer at Lawrence Elementary School’s Science and Discovery Night on January 24th. This successful event produced a great turnout, and we were honored to have an opportunity to participate. Our volunteers led many of the science oriented tables and activities throughout the night. Some of the experime
nts included dealing with the conductivity of different objects, creating a cloud in a bottle, and using Slinkys and cans to demonstrate how sound waves work.

Other students worked with the LES Health Department and an actual animal heart to show the children how tobacco affects one’s health and the different parts of a heart. Our volunteers did a fantastic job working and conducting numerous science experiments with the young students!

In addition, our volunteers helped out LIS at their Science Fair. At this event, we did a few more similar experiments and demonstrations with the kids, along with a trivia game. Our volunteers also helped the American Chemistry Society conduct some of their own experiments. - Grace Townsend, Community Outreach Committee, Junior 

LHS STEM members have continued to volunteer at LES's Science and Discovery Night every year.
