SPECIAL ETF Meeting this Friday, November 1st!

Project BioEYES is coming to UMBC!

When: this Friday, November 1st, 12pm-1pm

Where: Math/Psychology building, room 102

Why: To train UMBC students interested in helping their cause

ANYONE AND EVERYONE INTERESTED IN THIS GREAT OPPORTUNITY SHOULD COME.

Project BioEYES is a K-12 science education program that strives to “foster enthusiasm for science by offering students opportunities to explore life science through real world applications using a hands-on approach to learning”.

The program “provides classroom-based learning opportunities through the use of live zebrafish” targeting “underserved students in schools where youth have few opportunities to receive advanced, hands-on science programs”.

Come and get trained with Environmental Task Force!

If you have any questions feel free to contact our President, Jasmine Wands at jasmin4@umbc.edu!
