Jake Huddleston


       My job in the club is to take notes on the meetings of the officers and also occasionally take pictures for the website.  I do this because I want to help the Science Club in any way I an because it is important for students to learn STEM based education.

Sophie Gaither

   Website Manager, Experiment Planner

          I am in charge of the upkeep and editing of the Science Club website as well as helping to come up with new experiments for the club to try. I joined Science Club to learn more about this years main focus, light and its interactions with matter, and to help others who may be discouraged by STEM to have a way to be introduced to it as a potential career path.

Samantha Stark 

   Personal Relations

         I am the Communications Director. The reason I joined the Science Club is because I love science and how it explains everything.  I also love talking to people and figuring out how to solve problems.  I hope with Science Club we can make science fun. 

Eric Wilkins 

   Logistics Manager

            I am interested in Science Club because I just think science is really cool and I would love to help others get more involved.  I collect supplies and the equipment needed to do the experiments.
