The official name of this organization shall be the Engineering & Science Adventure Club of Montgomery College at Takoma Park. This name being a bit long, though, it shall customarily be referred as the "The Science Club."


The purpose of the Science Club is to promote interest, understanding, and knowledge of the scientific world throughout the college and local community. The area of emphasis shall include astronomy. The club shall seek to foster the type of honest skepticism that is necessary for life long learning.


The Science Club is to serve its member and local community to help them understand the universe in a scientific way. This service is to be accomplished through regular club meetings, special public seminars (open to all in the community), and field trips. Members will also have access to specialized workshops on becoming mentors and being mentored, improving science study skills, and fostering relationships with fellow members that have the collective focus of science as an advocate or vocation.


The Science Club is open to all students of Montgomery College both full and part-time, with an interest in knowing and understanding more about the universe. The club also offers honorary, nonvoting, membership to anyone who has previously been a member of the Physical Science Club or the Physics Club at Takoma Park, but is currently not a registered student this semester, but is willing to come to meetings. A minimum grade point average is not required of member. Students are expected to become better in part by their participation in this academically oriented club.

The Student Senate Representative is responsible for attending all InterClub Council meeting, or securing an officer of the club or in extreme emergency another regular member of the club to attend the Student Senate meetings. The Student Senate Representative is responsible for representing the clubs financial interest in that allocation of student activity funds and coordination between other recognized clubs. All officers must have at least a 2.0 grade point average and are expected to do much better than this minimum.


The frequency, time, and place of the meetings shall be decided by the members of The Science Club, but it is recommended that the club meet at least monthly (September through May) and perhaps more frequently than that. The officers will also have to meet together to make sure that meetings are planned so significant tasks can be done each meeting to further the purposes of the club. In addition to regular meetings the club should plan special seminars, and members field trips.
