Spring 2015 Update

Sigma Zeta Key Graphic

Dear Sigma Zetans:

I hope your spring semester is off to a good start.  Our 2015 National Convention is just two months away, March 26-28, but before talking more about the Convention I wanted to share the good news that another school has joined our organization.  On November 21, College of the Canyons in Santa Clarita, CA was installed as the third associate chapter of Sigma Zeta and second chapter in California. 

2014 - 2015 Sigma Zeta Service Project Theme

Dr. Richard Peterson, 2014 Convention Keynote Speaker, sharing the human side of scienceThe 2014 National Convention Service Committee selected the theme of "Sharing the Human Side of Science". The theme was inspired by the presentation of keynote speaker, Dr. Richard Peterson, who reminded us of the need to bring emotion, enthusiasm, and curiosity towards scientific outreach without forgetting our ethical responsibility to promote science as a human endeavor.
