Volunteer Scientists: Take the Show on the Road!

When offered an opportunity to put together a  chemistry “magic show” AP chemistry students jumped at the chance to share their passion for science. Since taking the AP chemistry exam early in May, these students have been working hard to put together meaningful science activities for younger students that were educational, engaging, and fun.

The MHS Scientists took their show on the road, presenting to 9 elementary school classrooms with students ranging from primary grades at the Atwood school to upper elementary at the Williams school.  Students topics range from the simple and hands-on “How to make Flubber” to the more complicated, but visually surprising “Iodine Clock Reaction,” all designed to engage the interest of their audience and to inspire some future scientists.”

Thank you to Mrs. Tupper (science teacher extraordinaire) and her students for taking the time to share their talents and time with some of our younger learners in the district!
