●    “Do you need community engagement hours? Have you ever wanted to be a test subject? If you 
answered yes to one or both of those questions then your in luck. The Science Research students are 
looking for people to be test subjects for their research project and if you sign up you can 
receive community engagement hours for participating. If you are interested in signing up to be a 
test subject then see the sign up board outside Ms. Utley’s room (room 152) and sign up to be a 
test subject.”  (5 weeks-starting 4/30)
