Huntsville, Ala. — On Tuesday, February 24, students from local elementary, middle, and high schools are invited to Oakwood University’s Department of Chemistry for a day of scientific discovery during the university’s Science Day 2009. All activities will take place on the second floor of Building 3, inside the Cooper Science Complex laboratory, beginning at 8:30 a.m. through 3:00 p.m. During those hours, students will have the opportunity to participate in fascinating hands-on experiments that bring textbook learning to life.The Alabama Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation Program (ALSAMP) sponsors this event. ALSAMP was established to increase the quality and quantity of underrepresented minority students completing baccalaureate degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. This diverse alliance includes Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), majority institutions, public and private institutions and research and teaching institutions to boost a new era of cooperation as the alliance seeks to maximize learning opportunities and increase the achievement bar for all ALSAMP students.
