July is definitely a great time of the year for starting a University group, or at least this is proving to be true for greenSTEMS! The weather is good, the work-load is lower than usual – mostly for bosses and supervisors being on holiday! – and autumn is still far enough to allow us to put together some plans in time for the beginning of the new academic year.
Now that we gathered some clever scientific minds from all around campus, it is time for us to roll our sleeves up and start turning great words and thoughts into something real! Last night we had our third greenSTEMS meeting and the 15 of us worked together on two event applications that were submitted today: an interactive and interdisciplinary greenSTEMS exhibit for York Researchers’ Night (YorNight) that will be held on September 26th, and a really inspiring and original project proposal for the Royal Society of Chemistry Outreach Fund. Keep your fingers crossed!!
