‘Science Day’ Comes to West Michigan Lutheran High School

‘Science Day’ Comes to West Michigan Lutheran High School

From: http://www.wmlhs.org/

On Friday, November 2nd, approximately one hundred and fifty 7th and 8th grade students from seven Lutheran schools across West Michigan will converge upon West Michigan Lutheran High School for a day of hands-on science.  This sixth annual ‘Science Day’ event brings middle school students together to showcase science projects, and encourage them to have fun with science.  

The students will arrive with posters, Rube Goldberg contraptions, mouse trap cars, egg drop devices, and trebuchets which they spent the last month and a half working on.  Projects from each school will be tested, presented, and scored. 

In addition, students will rotate through four hands-on science sessions that are based around the theme, “Bonded for Life.”  The Chemistry themed sessions are organized and presented by Lutheran High teachers with high school students serving as assistants.

From the City of Wyoming Facebook page:

Eleven years ago today many, if not all of us, stood transfixed to our television sets; in or offices at home, in schools, or in churches and watched in horrified amazement as our Nation was being attacked by a handful of Islamic Extremist.

All of us can remember exactly where we were and what we doing at that moment.  And ever since then, when we see the numbers 9–11, in any configuration, we immediately think back to that horrible day.

It is important that we remember.  It is important that we never forget the lives lost and the price that was paid by a handful of dedicated public safety workers, who rushed to that terrible scene, while so many thousands ran away.
