PSU hosts Science Day - Feb. 27

NEWS RELEASE ISSUED BY PITTSBURG STATE UNIVERSITY

PSU hosts Science Day Thursday

Organizers say they expect more than 700 high school students from Kansas and Missouri to participate in Pittsburg State University’s annual Science Day on Thursday, Feb. 27.

The event begins at 8:45 a.m. in the Crimson and Gold Ballroom of the Overman Student Center with opening remarks by PSU President Steve Scott. Students will compete in chemistry, physics, Earth and space science, and biology.

In addition to written exams, students work in teams on a variety of hands-on tests of both their scientific knowledge and their creativity. In the paper tower competition, students are challenged to build the tallest tower possible using only a sheet of paper and some paper clips. For the mousetrap car competition, they must build a car powered by a mousetrap and race it against other competitors’ cars.

PSU organizers said events like Science Day reinforce the message to young students that science can be fun, interesting and practical. It’s a message American education officials hope resonate as they try to boost science, math, technology and engineering programs across the nation.

Science Day concludes around 2 or 2:30 P.M. with the Biology Bowl team competition.

    Seven years ago today (May 22, 2018), Joplin and Duquesne were devastated by an EF-5 tornado. 161 lives were lost.  While many will never forget the devastation, many will also never forget the resilience that came from it. Families and friends visited Joplin's Cunningham Park today.  The park's layout and structures are designed to recognize the victims of the tornado and to provide a place for reflection.  People can also write messages in a guest book.
