California Academy of Mathematics and Science - Extra-Curricular Activities

Extra-Curricular Activities

Students at CAMS enjoy a variety of extra-curricular activities including: Dance Team, Key Club, Chess Club, Math Club, M.E.Ch.A., CHEER Club, Pinoy Club, Black Student Alliance (BSA), Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA), National Honor Society (NHS), Future Business Leaders of America, Associated Student Body (ASB), Muevete, Fashion Club, Rocket Team, Remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV) Team, National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), MESA (Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement), FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) Team, VEX Robotics Team, and HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America).

FRC, Vex Robotics, ROV, NSBE, and Rocket Team allow students to apply what they have learned in math, science, and engineering to create a product worthy of competition. MESA and the Robotics Program (VEX, ROV and FRC) are the largest organizations at CAMS whose main focus is math and science. As freshmen, students must all sign up to participate in the MESA program. Even though majority of the students are not active participants, there are many freshmen who continue MESA from middle school. After freshmen year, students choose whether they would like to remain in the program. Those who actively participate in the program during all of their four years at CAMS, are truly dedicated to the program. Most students do not choose to continue with the MESA program after freshmen year. Students may also join HOSA, which has recently started in conjunction with the new Biotechnology pathway at CAMS. Students in the CAMS HOSA team may compete in multiple medical science categories such as medical terminology, medical math, biomedical debates, etc. at the State and National level. Since students are allowed membership in the VEX Robotics program beginning their sophomore year, most tend to join the robotics team that year. It is very challenging to actively participate in all three programs.

Famous quotes containing the word activities:

    No culture on earth outside of mid-century suburban America has ever deployed one woman per child without simultaneously assigning her such major productive activities as weaving, farming, gathering, temple maintenance, and tent-building. The reason is that full-time, one-on-one child-raising is not good for women or children.
    Barbara Ehrenreich (b. 1941)
