Club leader Alzhraa Mahmoud (11) arranges the poster for the Knit and Crochet club. The display included examples of projects that could be made. “Anything you can [create] with yarn, you’re allowed to do in the club,” Katie Weber, another of the club’s four leaders, said.

Women in Science and Engineering

“[Women in science and engineering is] just a fun support group of girls who are interested in STEM,” senior Anna Dalton, the club’s president, said. “We just provide opportunities and events for female students interested in STEM at Ladue, and everyone is welcome.”

This semester, club meetings will focus on exploring different types of engineering with the help of guest speakers including engineering students and industry professionals. Club WISE also looks to post scholarship and pre-college program opportunities for juniors and seniors.

 

Knit & Crochet Club

“The purpose [of the club] is two things,” senior Katie Weber, one of four club leaders, said. “So obviously teaching people how to knit and crochet, but also just giving people an environment to do it.”

The club’s first meetings were designated for teaching members how to crochet, but help is always available. Later in the year, the club looks to work on charity projects that involve donating knit and crochet pieces.

“Whoever wants to be in the club can do it,” Weber said. “If they have any interest in learning how to crochet or knit or just like doing it.”

 

Model United Nations

“[Model United Nations is] a club that wants to get more people involved in international affairs and diplomacy,” club president and junior Akhil Nadithe said. “It’s important for everyone to know what’s happening around [them] in terms of climate change, environmental issues, et cetera.”

Model U.N. participants, acting as diplomats, debate global issues and promote cooperation among countries. Ladue’s club will participate in St. Louis area Model U.N. conferences, where members of all experience levels can participate.

 

English Club

“[English Club is] looking for people that want to have experience working with kids, people that are interested in becoming teachers or students that have learned English as a second language and want to help more students doing the same,” senior Jessica Steinberg, the club’s president, said.

Members travel to Spoede and Old Bonhomme Elementary School about once a week after school to connect with and guide ESL students.

“[English club is] a really fun way to volunteer and help the local communities,” Steinberg said.
