Extra Curricular Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math Clubs & Activities
Extra Curricular Clubs and Activities with a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) focus:
Robotics: The Mills Robotics Team 253 was established in 1999. It has been competing for fifteen years, earning numerous awards such as the 2000 Judge’s Award at the National Air and Space Agency Ames Regional and the 2002 Imagery Award at the Silicon Valley Regional. Every year, we attend a regional competition in the spring and an off-season competition in the fall. This teaching fosters a cooperative learning environment that encourages and helps students acquire a wide variety of technical skill useful for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics careers. Meetings on Wednesdays 3:30-5:30 in the Makerspace. Check out the Robotics Team Homepage here.
STEM Club: The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics club works in the Makerspace and explores careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics related fields. Last year, the club took various field trips such as to Autodesk to experience Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics careers.
Biologees: The Biologees Club takes biology out of the classroom and puts it in a “field trip like” perspective. We hold dissections, clean ups, and visits to local museums and other relevant places. Oh, and we take selfies. Meet Fridays at lunch in Room 243.
APP IT OUT: Our club was started this year with the goal of teaching students of all grades basic coding. We believe all students have the potential to code and make programming useful for themselves and others. Meet Thursdays at lunch in Room 308.
Arts & Crafts Club: The purpose of this club is to gather students who are interested in making handmade crafts, improving their creativity by doing activities such as drawing, puppet-making, cooking, and painting. Meetings are held every Tuesday during lunch in Room 217.
