Founded in 2013, the student chapter of SACNAS at Texas State University has the purpose of promoting recruitment, retention, excellence, understanding, and appreciation of Hispanics, Chicanos, Native Americans, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and other underrepresented minorities in science at Texas State University. Our organization welcomes students of ANY heritage or race who are committed to promoting science and engineering.
Our organization has been very active since its beginning. We aim to provide members opportunities to practice and improve their leadership skills, to interact with undergraduate and graduate students in a number of STEM fields, and to participate in outreach activities to local schools. Some of the most recent activities include:
- Science demo at the San Marcos Boys and Girls Club, December 15, 2013
- Food sell at the Quad to obtain funds to sponsor an underprivileged child to summer camp, January 13 and 14, 2014
- San Marcos STEM Fair, February 1, 2014. For experiment instructions click here.
