Once again, it’s time for the annual Science Circuit. Going on six years, it seems to get better and better each year with more and more students and classes getting involved. This year promises to be a great year with honors chemistry, physics, and honors anatomy and physiology participating, meaning that there will be a wide variety of wonders to see.

Originally started by Chemistry teacher Mamie Brubaker, it’s a way for students to explore their interests and show others the wonders of science.

Fifth- and sixth-grade students will make their way to the high school today during school hours to check out the event.

However, the Science Circuit will be open to the public from 2:45-5 p.m. today as well. The time was moved up from previous years so as to make it more accessible to students who want to stop in real quick before heading home.

There will be lots of fan favorites returning this year such as the liquid nitrogen ice cream and the Van de Graaf generator which causes hair to stand on end. The Science Circuit is a way to make science fun and interactive while showing how diverse the STEM field is.

“Science is not reserved for old guys in white lab coats with crazy hair.

“There are more opportunities in STEM careers than any other field in our world today,” Brubaker said.

Through this, students will have the chance to explore the scientific fields and possibly see what classes they may be interested in. There’s so much to see and do that students will be left in true wonder at how simple and fun, science can be.

“There are guaranteed to be lots of “wait, what?!” moments throughout the day. It is truly an event that will bring out the inner curiosity in all, ages 3-103” Brubaker said.
