Week of December 11th

Hey BMES,

It's crunch time, and I'm sure you are all feeling the heat (I know I sure am!). To give you plenty of time to get ready for your exams, presentations, papers, and whatever else you might have, we'll only be having one event this week, Science Olympiad...the middle schoolers at Edgewood still need to learn! See below for details!

Good luck with your busy weeks!

Hey BMES!

Congrats on making it halfway through the semester (although I'm sure most of you are like me and won't feel the relief until you turn in your Design Deliverables on Wednesday). This week we'll be having our first Bagel Sale and another Science Olypmiad on Wednesday, along with The River Food Pantry on Friday. In honor of the upcoming holiday we'll be helping out at the UW-Habitat Rake-a-thon throughout the weekend and we'll compete against the other Engineering Orgs next Monday to collect the most canned goods for Trick-or-Treat for Cans.

If you missed the meeting last week, be sure to sign up for National Habitat for Humanity, which will be January 15th-22nd in New Orleans. There are only 4 spots left!

Have a good week,
