Publication is an important part of the scientific experience. All ATOM Science Club members are encouraged to contribute to the club newsletter. Watch here for a link to the first newsletter of the new academic year, to be released soon.
Each club member is encouraged to participate in the club newsletter every month. Parental help is greatly appreciated so as to aid in the success of our newsletter. Parental participation in the newsletter greatly enhances the family aspect we encourage.
Submissions to the newsletter are not required, but greatly encouraged to unite all club members and families, whether beginning or advanced.
All submissions will be published in the newsletter provided they are appropriate, proofread for content and reasonable clarity by a parent. (Please, parent, sign off on the copy your child turns in.)
Remember to include important details like the student's name, age, and date with newsletter submissions.
