Poland Seminary High School’s science club hosted their annual Science Jam on May 16 outside of the school.

The fourth year event included science showcases and musical performances. All students in the high school were invited to the program.

“I wanted to provide a casual, social demo/live music event,” said Beth Queen, science teacher at the school and organizer for the event. She saw that she had students with interests in both science and music, so she wanted to combine the two for the event.

They had a number of science displays. They had an oobleck, a non-Newtonian fluid that is a liquid at rest and a solid when in movement. The group placed out different dissected animals, such as a pig fetus, cow eye and a starfish.

The robotics club also had a demonstration. Mum Masaki, a member of the club, showed others how to move and control the robots and how they could pick up objects with them. He said being in the club can get hectic sometimes, but he has fun.

Students performed a number of different songs during the event. To begin the event, one student sang a number of pun-related songs, such as rephrasing “Hey Jude” by the Beatles to a be a song about science.
