The last meeting for the Mulvane Math and Science Club will be Wednesday, May 1 at 11:00 a.m. Weather permitting, the members will be racing their wind-powered vehicles that they created earlier this month.

Team Windfoam included Elliott McNelly, Jeramy (correct spelling) Lamar, Brandon McIntosh, Nicky Maurer and Kayla Dye.
Team Wind Wheel included Angelica Wood, Jaison Moravec, Evan Bradley, Jade Carlson and Daniel Freeland.
