Skyline High School Biology Club
The Skyline Biology Club was founded in 2004 as the "Skyline Biological Society" with 10 founding members. Since then, the club has grown to an annual membership of over 30 students. You can read the club constitution (pdf). Skyline High School was a founding member of the National Bio Club organization run through the National Association of Biology Teachers. Our regular meeting are held roughly every other Thursday in room 1107. Biology club members pay a lab fee to cover the expenses labs and dissections performed by members. The club activities are determined by the student leadership team. Common activities include dissections (heart, eye, squid, brain, crayfish) and volunteering at the local elementary science fair.
Meetings for the 2019-2020 school year will be held:
