Since 2007 the Chemistry & Biochemistry Club has hosted various workshops and events to promote the importance of science. Our primary objective is to advance and promote science education among club members and among the CSUN community at large. To this end, we plan activities and attend several science-related events throughout the year such as museum tours, lectures, workshops/demonstrations for middle and high school students. The Chemistry & Biochemistry Club accepts a variety of non-chemistry majors such as business, psychology, biology, physics, etc. Regardless of your major or knowledge of science anybody is more than welcome to join if you are interested in furthering our promotion of science to CSUN and the greater community.
California State University, Northridge - Women in Science (CSUN WiS) is intended to be an encouraging environment to help university women (undergraduate, graduate, staff, and faculty) think about and face challenges in their academic and career development. We hold regular lunches with female faculty, short skill-development workshops, lecture series, outreach events, and discussions every semester. We also have an amazing Girls in Science and Technology outreach program that aims to expose middle and elementary school girls to potential careers within science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields, and motivate them to pursue further education in these areas.
