    Thanks for visiting the RHS Science Club's website! 


     What is Science Club?

     The Richwoods Science Club is a (mostly) student-led organization for exploring science activities and community science projects. The club is made up of 10th-12th grade students interested in continuing science outside of the classroom. The major activities consist of community science projects (see handout), events and field experiences.
