Each year the SSSC team organizes a variety of activities in which all Faculty of Science students can participate.
Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup
For the past two years, the SSSC participated in the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. All students were invited to help pick up debris along the river on Carleton's campus. Over 20 students attended each year, including a group from the Eco Floor, a themed community in Carleton's residence halls.
Design Your Lab Coat
The SSSC partners with the Carleton University Biology Society to offer an event where students can bring their plain lab coats and turn them into the envy of their labmates by adding spray paint, iron-on transfers and pictures.
Relay for Life
Each year the SSSC forms a team, raises money and participates in CU Relay for Life. In winter 2016 our team held a bake sale on campus to raise money. As a whole, over 800 people participated CU Relay for Life and raised a total of $117,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society, which was the largest post-secondary Relay for Life in Canadian history!
The SSSC sponsors ski trips each winter semester. All students are invited to sign up and receive the discounted group rate once registration opens. Groups are picked up by bus at Carleton on a Friday afternoon and spend the evening skiing and snowboarding (location to be decided). At the end of the evening, the bus returns everyone to campus. This year the trips are on Friday January 27th and Friday February 10th. Tickets will be on sale in the SSSC up until 8 days before the trip takes place.
During Science Spirit Week in September, a campus wide Wizarding Theemed scavenger hunt will take place for all First Year students. Not only will you learn all the best spots on campus to help you succeed but you'll also be competing for a Science Survival Kit!
