Abstract

The objectives of this project in continuing and expanding a Science and Engineering Club at South High School for the academic year 2007-08 were to raise interest for careers and further learning in the fields of science and engineering, to encourage club attendance and interest, and to study the learning styles of the club participants. Interest in careers within the sciences was increased through experiments and demonstration lectures that were presented at every meeting. Learning styles were analyzed for a subset of the members, and results applied to teaching approaches implemented during weekly meetings. Club attendance was the largest problem area and was never successfully resolved. Recommendations for addressing various observed problems are presented for future consideration.
