Science Days at the University of Great Falls

Posted: Updated:

High school students from all over Cascade County are right here at the University of Great Falls to learn how science can be both educational and fun.

The University of Great Falls invited more than 100 high school students from different schools in Cascade County to their science building

"High schools from Neighboring areas come in this is our 5th or 6th year of doing our science days and we have a really good turnout," Say Dr. Diane Lund.

These science days allow doctors and professors at the University's science department to show students some college level science through many cool demonstrations.

"So it gives the students an opportunity to see science in action and that's what we want, science is alive and well it's not static. It's very dynamic and so we give them opportunities to see that dynamic nature of science," adds Dr. Lund.

Allie Phillips from Great Falls Central Catholic High school was very excited to see all science had to offer and more.

"It's amazing it's really fun to do all the experiments instead of just sitting in the classroom all day. It really makes you realize the fun that science is instead of just a subject," says Phillips.

With her joy of science renewed, Phillips says she will look at her own science class a little different from now on.

"Just when I'm sitting in class thinking why am I here? I'm really just going to think back to this and this is why we do science and this is all the wonders of science," explains Phillips.
