We had so much fun with the awesome students and staff in Sidney this week. From the very first day, when Mrs. Nobles helped us unload our Brain exhibit into the High School multi-purpose room, everyone in Sidney was warm, helpful, and enthusiastic. Monday we got to hang out with the 5th and 6th graders, along with some great high school students. We saw the high school’s Anatomy & Physiology classes, a Psychology class (who were sculpting their own brains in class!), and lots of other science classes joined in as we learned about the brain. We worked with 550 students through field trips over our two day visit.
Family Science Night was a blast, with about 100 kids of all ages, as well as some very excited parents and teachers. They checked out our amazing flies, felt the brains and eye balls, and shot some hoops with the crazy goggles on. The teachers even had some cool ideas for new traveling exhibits. Thank you to the teachers, students, and families of Sidney, for having us to your community. And a big thank you to the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation for sponsoring this tour stop.
Tuesday we spent all day with different classes of 7th graders, as well as some more high school science classes. We also met some middle schoolers in the science fair class who told us about their amazing experiments and showed off their knowledge of the brain. It’s always so fun to see students of different ages interacting and learning from each other and the exhibit. Overall, we reached 642 students. Sidney was a great final stop on our tour, and we can’t wait to see them next time. Thank you to the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation and the Big Sky Project for powering this tour stop.
