March 4, 2013

 

Math & Science field tripThe Mulvane Math and Science Club took advantage of the break in the weather last weekend, February 24, and traveled to Hutchinson to visit the Kansas Underground Salt Museum and the Kansas Cosmosphere.

Nine members, three guests and two faculty advisors began their day at the salt mines. They donned their hard hats and emergency lighting/breathing apparatus and descended 650 feet underground on a hoist.

To learn about the history and the functionality of the mines, students experienced a walking tour, which included guided tours and audio/visual exhibits through the galleries and the underground vaults and storage exhibits. Students were allowed to select a souvenir piece of salt and visit the gift shop. They also took the popular Dark Ride tour.

The group gathered for lunch at Sirloin Stockade and then headed to the Cosmosphere for the afternoon. Students enjoyed the Hall of Space Museum, the Justice Planetarium and the digital dome theater.

Showing in the theater was  "The Last Reef: Cities Beneath the Sea" which explores the beauty and mysteries of the world's reef ecosystem.

Students attending were Brandon McIntosh, Angelica Wood, David Koch, Amy Moore, Mark Janzen, Jaison Moravec, Andre Bell, Abbie Shinkle, Jeramy Lamar. The faculty advisors are Uwe Conrad and Nancy Ayers.

The Mulvane Math and Science Club is open to all students. The club meets twice a month, sponsors regular fundraising food events and organizes field trips.

A favorite activity over the last several years has been the West Point Bridge Contest, which challenges students to go online and create the strongest, yet most economical bridge design.
