The Applied Science Club at Butte College seeks to enrich and expand the experience of students of math, science, and engineering. The club creates a learning community by holding informal study sessions in which students network with one another, sharing knowledge and resources. In addition, the club conducts community outreach activities, including scientific demonstrations for local K-12 schools, as well as projects to improve the Butte College campus. Here are a few of our recent activities and accomplishments:
