Chemistry Club

From 2013 to 2017, I volunteered as an undergraduate member of Camden County College’s Chemistry Club. Over the years I helped out in a variety of local community engagement events and donation drives. During the holiday seasons, I would help collect and distribute donated toys to daycare centers or families in need. Once a year I would also help facilitate activities for the Science Olympiad, where middle-school students would come to the college campus and compete in a series of scientific experiments. I also helped administer science experiments for disadvantaged families in Winslow Township so that children could be introduced to neat areas of science. Towards the end of my involvement with the Chemistry Club I decided to develop a fundraiser to help further the clubs activities. I designed the most successful fundraising initiative the club has had to date. It was called Chemistry Bingo, no surprise there. I coordinated the design, pricing, expected returns using probability analysis, purchasing of materials, and the prize system. The fundraiser was so successful that they continued to run it the following year after I had left. Volunteering through the Chemistry Club at Camden County College was a great experience. It gave me the opportunity to network with other students, earn my first internship, and develop a good repertoire with my professors at the school.
