10/11

We met again to discuss our upcoming fluids presentation at Fairburn, and how we wanted to structure the lesson. We settled on booths, with each booth covering a different aspect of fluids and also answering a commonly asked question (i.e. What is a fluid?). Union Aveneue Elementary responded that they would like the next presentation to be on Thursday, October 21, and this presentation will about forces. Please sign up by Monday if you can make it!

10/4

We met in person for the first time on 10/4. We received FOUR new opportunities for presenting this quarter (two Fairburn Avenue Elementary presentations, one Union Avenue Elementary presentation, and the Exploring Your Universe booth) and discussed what topics we wanted to teach at the upcoming Fairburn Elementary presentation. The vote was tallied, and we decided on fluids (non-Newtonian fluids, capillary actions)! We also did an ice breaker of rose, bud, and thorn for everyone to introduce themselves, and we then ended the night with pizza! IMPORTANT: Please see the email regarding the Slack channel. Make sure you join to get updates as well as other important information (such as the sign-up sheet for this quarter)!.


9/27

SLTC had its first meeting on Monday, September 27th on Zoom. The club board welcomed a crowd of 50 and explained what the club does, how presentations work, and why everyone should join. Then, we went into breakout rooms, one for each board member, and did a Q & A along with some ice-breakers and introductions. We want to thank everyone who came to the meeting, and we all can't wait to see you at the next! Especially since a school has contacted us about teaching, so an opportunity for all is near!
