S15 Science Club

The Science Club at Butte College seeks to enrich and expand the experience of students interested in science for personal growth or a professional career. The Club creates a community of students and faculty who share their knowledge and passion for science through informal internal discussion, touring off-campus facilities to experience science in action, and personal outreach to the community at Butte College and the colleges' service area through scientific demonstrations designed to instill appreciation and excitement for the scientific process.

The Science Club welcomes students of every major.  For more information about the Science Club, contact one of the Fall 2015 faculty advisers:
