Community Partners Meeting December 19 Summary


 On December 19, 2014 Scientists for Tomorrow hosted its Community Partners meeting at Columbia College Chicago.
The goal of the meeting was to introduce the new partners that joined us for the Winter – Spring 2015 session as well as to discuss the new developments that will take place during this period. More than 30 representatives from 14 Community Based Organizations (CBO) participated in the meeting.
After the introductions, the community partners participated in an activity – Building an Ultra Violet Light with simple materials. The objective of the activity was to demonstrate that it is simple to work together as a community than to be isolated making an activity. Then we described the program and the division of the responsibilities between Scientists for Tomorrow and the CBO’s, to ensure the success of the program.

To finalize, we discussed the logistics needed for the implementation of the module, “The Physics of Sound and Mathematics of Music” for the 34 sites. The discussion included the professional development training dates, the STEAM conference on May 2 and the next Family Science Day, at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum on May 23.
At the end of the meeting all the participants had a clear idea of what to expect for the next six months!!!  For more information on how to incorporate Scientists for Tomorrow in your  community center or school, contact
