What Does This Have To Do With Science?
The answer to that question is completely up to current club members. The goal of the club is serviced-based. If you want to encorperate this with science ideas, field trips and activities, super! If you just want to focus on the service aspect of the club, that works too. We can do as little or as much with science as the members of the club decide.
