Commodores for Science Competitions
We aim to build upon standard science curriculum in class from teachers and VSVS to give students a chance to pursue deeper opportunities or try out new interests that are not achievable in the traditional classroom in the STEM field through competitions such as Science Olympiad, Science Bowl, and Science Fair.
Scientific Immersion and Mentorship
We aim to provide students with information and resources to help them prepare for careers in science by exposing students to the opportunities available in research both on campus and beyond, by giving students opportunities to explore scientific careers paths to determine if it’s right for them.
