On April 27, Stephenville High School POWER SET (Powerful Opportunities for Women Eager and Ready for Science, Engineering and Technology) and WIT (Workforce in Training) hosted the second annual Science on Saturday event.
Science on Saturday (SOS) is an exciting science program for the young (K-12) and young at heart and is free. The event highlights fun and educational science experiment and demonstrations of electrical circuits, sensory stimulation, environmental effects and much more. Students learn through interactive, hands-on activities that include fun with polymers, magnets and neurons, as well as everyday products and household materials. The event is sponsored by the Nuclear Power Institute (NPI), Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station and Texas A&M University.
The program at Stephenville High School was led by local educators and supported by Tarleton State University professors, instructors, and students, various industry professionals, and local POWER SET, WIT, Power GRID (Girls Responding to Industry Demands), and BRT (Boys Resourcing Technology) members.
“We had more than 300 participants from the community and our members showcased over 40 unique demonstrations and experiments,” said Brian Salge, SHS physics teacher and WIT sponsor. “We are so thankful to NPI, TEES, and Texas A&M for making it possible for our POWER SET, WIT, Power GRID, and BRT members to be showcased in this way. We would also like to thank our local partners at Tarleton State University College of Science and Technology for their support of the event.”
