In honor of the Acceptance theme, physics teacher Chris Spenner gave a speech about acceptance at the meeting, and a community bonding event took place in the Athletic Center MPR at 12:45 p.m.

The Science and Business Departments announced a joint challenge, the STEMnovation challenge, which asks teams of three to six members to submit a one-page business plan addressing a green issue.
