  • St. Paul High School students have been preparing to attend the annual Science Day, hosted by Pittsburg State University. There they can compete with other schools in the area in tests in physics, chemistry, biology, earth and space science, and present various projects such as a Mars colony, and seismic shaker towers.
    After presenting projects such as physics projects of mousetrap cars and paper towers, there are tests to compete in, and a cadaver lab tour, all to provide the opportunity to see how professional labs run, and the opportunity to learn and experience science in a college setting.
    “It's an opportunity to increase students' interest in science,” Mr. Nick Jacquinot stated. All students compete in two or more events, individual or team. Students presenting a project have been preparing for over a week, and practice tests help to prepare students for team and individual tests.
    This year will be the second year St. Paul students have participated in Pitt States' Science Day for biology and earth and space sciences, and physics students have been entering the contest for nineteen years now. Many of the students are looking forward to it. Forty-five students from all different science classes are attending this event, even more than had attended the previous year.
