Last week some Chadron State College Students visited out program and led our students in four activities: building earthquake-proof structures, making chemical reactions, building a model of the layers of the earth, and building a model of the layers of the ocean. Funding for the visit came from a NASA grant aimed at helping elementary education students feel more comfortable teaching science. Thanks so much for a great visit everyone!
