As has grown to be STEM Leadership Society tradition, the autumn semester was commenced which has a picnic in the Thomas Masters Pavilion in Boardman Park. New members had time to fulfill their fellow classmates, along with returning members as well as a several faculty too. Great food and fun were had by all: barbeque courtesy of Barry Dyngles, additionally, the fun group effort from all of people who brought games like cornhole, volleyball, and kickball. It was actually an incredible turnout this year, with around 50+ students attending. Really day is focused on understanding the other person and achieving a rather better prospect of what SLS is. The autumn calendar was discussed and plans for any wide-range of events were mentioned, including: seminars about undergraduate research, international studies, and preparing/applying for graduate schools; service projects with the YNDC and Habitat for Humanity; volunteer opportunities while using STEM College and OhWow!; an excursion of NAMII; etc.
SLS handed out t-shirt order forms for members, took market research of meeting times to best accommodate our members, did simple ice breakers, introduced themselves, and did an easy team-building exercise with straws/paperclips/tape to find out who are able to build the tallest, stable tower.
To be part of this tradition the coming year, consider applying with the group in the spring. The applying and interviewing process can be seen?here. Make sure to check SLS from Facebook to view all of the pictures in the tower contest!
