Students are encouraged to make additions to the BSM community based on their interests, in order to make the school more welcoming and diverse. Juniors Sarah Kinney and Jeanna Edlund recently started the CER Science Club, inspired by their significant interest in science.

CER stands for Claim, Evidence and Reasoning. These two students started this club to expand their own, and hopefully, other people’s involvement in science beyond the classroom. “Jeanna Edlund and I went to a Science club this summer and we had a lot of fun so we wanted to share our love of science with everyone,” Kinney said.

The Science Club will meet once a month, usually towards the end of the month in the mornings. “The meetings will last anywhere from 15 to 35 minutes, so if it’s a regular meeting it will only last about 15 to 20 minutes, but then sometimes we do an activity while we’re in the meeting, and then it will last a little longer. It is in Mr. Peterson’s room, the biology room,” Edlund said.

I’m excited to help lead the club and do fun science activities and help other people enjoy science as much as I do.”

Edlund and Kinney are excited to to see the club expand. “We’re planning on having a couple experiments, and we’re planning a slime experiment currently. We’re also planning on having a couple of speakers come in and maybe taking a field trip to the Science Museum,” Kinney said.

As the club expands, Edlund and Kinney want to be able to strengthen other students’ interests and hope to continue exploring all of the different fields of science. “I’m excited to help lead the club and do fun science activities and help other people enjoy science as much as I do,” Edlund said.
