To give back to our community and assist other STEM programs our team hosted a ice skating fundraiser. Just before Christmas we organized a fundraiser at an ice rink in Lakewood. This event also provided an opportunity for new and returning members to get to know each other outside of lab. To honor and support the changing demographics in STEM fields all the money raised was donated to “Girls Who Code,” a charity that specifically encourages recruiting more girls in STEM. With the ability to raise money for an amazing organization we strengthened the bonds of our team, supported our STEM community, and overall had an awesome experience. We hope to continue doing this event in the years to come.
