School’s Science Project Night draws huge crowd
Chase County Schools (CCS) science teachers Jennifer Gonzalez and Kim Wilson, along with Arlys Cupp, second grade teacher, presented a Science Project Night at CCS May 21.
The grades that participated were second, seventh, eighth and ninth.
Wilson’s ninth grade students demonstrated their individual versions of a Rube Goldberg machine they made earlier in the spring.
The object was to build a functioning machine with which the end result would pop a balloon, light up a light bulb or put a ball into a cup.
“There was no competition for these students. They simply received extra credit for presenting their projects to the public,” she said.
