Since 2007 the Chemistry & Biochemistry Club has hosted various workshops and events to promote the importance of science. Our primary objective is to advance and promote science education among club members and among the CSUN community at large. To this end, we plan activities and attend several science-related events throughout the year such as museum tours, lectures, workshops / demonstrations for middle and high school students. Some of our events include Sally Ride, Expanding your Horizons, J. Paul Getty Museum laboratory tour, Los Angeles Coroner's Office laboratory tour, beach clean-ups, Earth Day, and other social events. The Chemistry & Biochemistry Club accepts a variety of non-chemistry majors such as business, psychology, biology, physics, etc. Regardless of your major or knowledge of science anybody is more than welcome to join if you are interested in furthering our promotion of science to CSUN and the greater community.
