Oh, and by the way, I just received word from the Utah State Board of Regents that the STEM Center is now OFFICIAL!!!!!

Does this excite anyone?

Below is a funding announcement that may be of interest. If you are interested in proposing on a project, please contact our office.

Thanks,

I just received this request.  Any takers?

John, greetings from beautiful down down New Harmony.  I am the children's librarian in the New Harmony library.  We are gearing up (another term for pulling out our hair) for the summer reading program.  This year the topic is science, and the slogan is Fizz Boom Bang!
 
 Would you or someone in the science department  be able to come to New Harmony Library on Wed. July 16th @ 1:00 pm and present a half hour program to our little summer readers.  Our audience will be little people ages 1-12.

Remember our meeting at 3 today. Deans Conference room in the science building.

I was just begged by the U of U to get at least two students to sign up for the iUtah Summer Research Institute. This will be held at USU July 7-11th. Students will get housing and food and I bet we can round up some gas money as well.

This would be perfect for pre-service 9-12 teachers and science undergrad students. Contact me or Spruell about this.

The Doodle results suggest that we hold our next meeting on Tuesday, April 1st from 3-4pm.  See you in the Dean's Conference room in the Science Building.

Our next meeting will build off of what we have learned about the science fairs.  Therefore, I'm hoping to have the meeting after the craziness of science fairs are over--I'm thinking first week in April.  Here is the Doodle Poll to check everyone's availability.
