Amnesty International is a global movement of more than 3 million supporters, members and activists in over 150 countries and territories who campaign together and partner with other organizations to end grave abuses of human rights. Its vision is for every person to enjoy all the rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and other international human rights standards. It is independent of any government, political ideology, economic interest or religion.

BCA has the largest and most active Amnesty International student group in the US. We have contributed to many major human rights success stories over the past decade, including:

  • The adoption of the landmark Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) by the General Assembly at the United Nations in 2013.
  • The release of prisoners of conscience, such as Aung San Suu Kyi in 2010.
  • The abolition of the death penalty in the state of New Jersey in 2007.

Students in the Wednesday club will learn about Amnesty's theory of change, about the issues, the campaigns, the cases, the victories, and the research in every country across the globe. They will develop skills as activists that will further empower them to be agents of positive change in the world.

Soundwave Audio Lab is the club where students build unique devices that unite music and electronics! Each trimester offers a new project design, which students complete and take home at the end of the term. This trimester, students will build a unique device that lets anyone draw with music! Draw + Audio = Drawdio. Essentially, it’s a very simple musical synthesizer that uses the conductive properties of pencil graphite to create sounds. The result is a fun device that lets you “draw” musical sounds on a piece of paper. The heart of the kit is a TLC551 IC powered by transistors. Everything is small enough to mount on a pencil. Students will complete all steps of building the device in one trimester: interpreting circuit diagrams, soldering electronic components, testing, modifying, and mounting the PCB. There is a $15 material fee for this club.

Limit of 10 students.
