Arctic Wildlife and Winter Crafts December 10, 2014Posted by jessicategt in Events & Announcements.
This coming Tuesday will be our LAST meeting in the year 2014! This year has flown by with much learning and fun, and we will wrap up this winter talking about animals adapted to extremely cold environments (WAY colder than we will ever experience in Mississippi). We will learn about arctic food chains and survival strategies and also make some winter crafts. After this meeting, the holiday season will be upon us and we will not meet again until January. We hope to see you there and come ready to **CHILL** with us!
MSU Vet School FIELD TRIP December 3, 2014Posted by jessicategt in Events & Announcements.
This coming Tuesday we have another field trip! We will be touring the vet school and seeing a necropsy (animal autopsy) performed on a deer in their recently finished facilities. This will be an exciting opportunity to explore veterinary medicine and see the anatomy of a large animal. We will have transportation TO and FROM campus, pick-up will be at Ward-Stewart at the normal time.
THANKSGIVING FUN DAY!!! November 19, 2014Posted by jessicategt in Events & Announcements.
This coming week we have our annual Thanksgiving Fun Day! We will spend all day on campus playing games, doing activities, and visiting different places and special guests around campus. Parents will have an e-mail soon with our full schedule and any information you may need to prepare for the day. REMINDER: You MUST be signed up to participate for this event so we can make sure we have transportation and food for everyone involved. It has been a fantastic year in Science Club and so far and we look forward to celebrating and having a blast with our clubbers. Happy Thanksgiving!
Mammology (December 2nd) November 19, 2014Posted by jessicategt in Events & Announcements.
At our next science club meeting at the beginning of December we will be discussing one of the most familiar group of animals: mammals! Being mammals ourselves we can start preparing for this week rather easily. We will talk about what makes a mammal a mammal and how to tell what a mammal eats (hint: look at your own teeth in a mirror). We will also talk about different kinds of mammals because while all mammals have some key things in common, they are an incredibly diverse group of animals ranging in size from 30 millimeters (about 1 inch) to 30 meters (98 feet) living in every type of ecosystem! Come prepared to learn about the wonderful world of all your favorite furry things.
