The students explored a variety of science disciplines such as chemistry, biology, physics, math, computer science (and even music) through hands-on experiments. GSW faculty and students led the demonstrations, which included holding snakes, igniting gas-filled bubbles in their hands, exploring the sounds waves of music, and liquid nitrogen explosions! The event is meant to expose high school students to the various areas in the sciences in a fun, engaging way to peak their interest for future decisions when choosing their major.
