Club was founded in fall of 2003 and is a student driven organization. The students present their interests and desires as they pertain to science, the club decides which they wish to pursue and the sponsor provides opportunity and structure for the activities.
Emphasis of the club is on science, positive group dynamics and fun. The RHS Science Club has regularly scheduled meetings after school on Thursdays at 2:30pm in room B202. However, there are times during the year that short notice is given or mandatory meetings are required.
All fund raisers must be attended by club members to maintain membership. There is a $15.00 annual due associated with club participation and membership, this fee is to be paid by October 8th of 2009. In the fall the club will sponsor a dinner for the members. This meal is prepared by the club sponsor. The evening is kicked off by a “Hunt the Freshman” activity. The students that are new to the club are given a map and a destination address within the community. The students must then try to deliver an object to the address while the other club members are looking to intercept them.
This has become one of the most popular annual events put on the by the club. During the fall of 2009 the club has had a Cajun Boil that was an aquatic ecosystem study that ended with a very fine dinner from the crawfish that the students had collected.
The students have also visited the Ft Lupton Historical Society and learned about the history of the fur trade along the front-range. The students also plan on returning and doing volunteer work for the organization. The students also spent a day blacksmithing and learning about metallurgy. Future club activities are currently being planned, and scheduled for later this year and into next spring.
