The Butterfield STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Club is sponsored, in partnership, by Butterfield teachers and Pima Community College science professors.
The club meets bimonthly. The Pima Community College professors allow the Butterfield students to use college equipment and materials. Some of the lab activities from last year were dissecting owl pellets, analyzing animal skulls, preparing slides with pond scum and viewing microscopic creatures, and studying the effect of sunscreen on solar sensitive beads.
The year culminated with a field trip to Pima Community College to visit science classrooms and labs. The science department chairs and professors, along with many community volunteers, led the students in many hands-on activities.
