Student Life

Clubs

The Whitman MS Clubs listed below were active during the 2020-2021 school year. Currently, school clubs are not active. We are excited to begin our club meetings again as soon as our middle schools are approved to continue with clubs during the pandemic.

Student Clubs at Whitman

We look forward to resuming our club schedule at Whitman in the 2021-22 year.

Please view sample offerings based on our 2020-21 lineup.

Meditation Club 

Rick Olson: Meditation Club

Meditation Club is a chance to recharge your mental batteries and lock in the learning! Spending time focused on one thought helps your mind make neural connections that mimic sleeping, when memories become “locked-in”. Meditating on what you have learned, what you need to spend more time learning, or intentionally thinking about the steps to learn will increase your grades and decrease your anxiety.
You don’t have to sign up. You don’t have to be on time. You only need to want to improve…and join!

Marine Biology Club

Thomas Fanning: Marine Biology Club

This club is for everyone whether you know a ton about marine biology or not! Come on in and join us for 45 minutes to learn about marine biology and the mammals that live in the sea.

Coding Club

Austin Ochoa: Coding Club

Many of you may be wondering, what is coding and why should I learn how to code? To answer the first question, coding is using a programming language to get a computer todo what you want it to do. There are many programming languages, just like there are many spoken languages. During our coding club, we will be working with the programming language called Python. To answer the second question, you should learn how to code because many professions (jobs)desire people who know how to code. For example, Python is used in many professions such as Game Development, Web Development, Astronomy, Medicine, Neuroscience, Data Science, and many others.

You also may be wondering, what exactly will we be doing in coding club? Well, in our coding club we will be working with animations (moving drawings)from activities created by Carnegie Mellon University. Carnegie Mellon University is one of the best Universities in the world for Computer Science. During Coding Club, you will be given the freedom to learn at your own pace. I will assign you activities/exercises that you will be able to practice either during coding club or on your own time. During our actual club meetings, you will have the opportunity to ask questions as you are completing exercises ,share your solutions with others to help your peers complete exercises, or just work on completing the exercises you are assigned. The great part about this club is that you can learn as much as you want on your own time and bring any questions you have, or only spend time during coding club learning how to code: the choice is yours!
