Jacqueline Van Hoomissen, biology, would like to send a special thank you to all students and faculty who participated in the annual Science Night on Tuesday, November 19, at Holy Redeemer Catholic School in North Portland. The event was a great success and there were more than 66 undergraduate student volunteers from biology, chemistry, physics, education, and engineering. Undergraduate science education outreach students and faculty from Portland State University, Portland Community College, and Reed College, as well as volunteers from Saturday Academy, also took part.
Science Night is a fun-filled education evening full of hands-on science learning activities created by undergraduate students. This is the fifth year of the University’s Science Night and organizers would love to hear from anyone who is interested in getting involved. The final Science Night for the 2013-2014 academic year will take place in April; please contact Van Hoomissen at email@example.com for more information or to sign up to participate.
