NEW TOWN Fort Berthold Community College science student Braedyn Taft helps third-graders build an exploding sandwich bag using vinegar, hot water, and baking soda at a science station during Super Science Day at the college on Oct. 12. Taft was among college students who assisted at the event, where Edwin Moe Elementary School students had a blast learning about science.
Science instructor Stacey Mortensen said about 80 third-graders attended the event, which was put on by students and instructors at the college. There were about 15 different science stations where the children had a chance to take part in hands-on science experiments with the help of the college students.
"The kids just love it," said Mortensen, who said it's the second year the tribal college has held Super Science Day. "They get to explode things and build sticky goo."
