Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science welcomes all local elementary schools to attend this year’s Science Carnival, where students can participate in a multitude of educational, interactive exhibits on Oct. 30.
The event is set to take place from 8 a.m. to noon in the Pohl Gymnasium on the campus of the Mississippi University for Women.
At the carnival, students can visit various exhibits to learn more about key scientific principles such as inertia, electricity, the metrics system, properties of water, and color and light manipulation. In addition to offering these exciting exhibits and hands-on workshops for students, teachers will receive a guidebook that details inexpensive ways to incorporate more science-based learning into their classroom instruction.
Every current MSMS student plays a role in the science carnival. While some students serve as greeters and host exhibits, others assist with the event setup and teardown. Not only is the Science Carnival a great way for MSMS share the love of science learning with local students, it is also an invaluable lesson for current MSMS students on community activism.
