Hey guys – Becky here,
I’m sending this on behalf of Duke ScienceDays. For those of you who do not know
about ScienceDays. It is a mentoring program geared towards elementary students
to foster scientific curiosity through hands-on learning opportunities, (science
experiments, cool lab demos, anything hands-on.) For example, we dissect cow eyes,
experiment with dry ice, and make slime! It is a nationally recognized 501(c)3 non-profit
organization and it was started in 2004 by two high school students at North Carolina
School of Science & Mathematics. Since then it has spread to high schools across the
nation, as well as several universities. In 2008-2009, it came to Duke University and has
been growing since.
This is an invitation to all who have any interest science. OR if you just think mentoring,
teaching, or taking a break and getting off campus is important! The kids are amazing
and it is so much fun! Currently we are doing 2 mentoring sessions a week:
1) Mondays (4:15 – 5:30) @ George Watts Elementary
2) Wednesdays (4:00 – 5:15) @ E.K. Powe.
**Both are within walking distance from East Campus and you can walk with the group
of mentors for that day to the site**
In short, if you know you’re free during those times, done with classes, and aren’t doing
anything till dinner time, we want YOU!
