Sisters Science Club

The Sisters Science Club hosted a successful science fair at Sister High School in February. Every science class in the school district was represented! There were human levers and pulleys, DNA experiments, photos from the Sci-Art contest, 100 inventions from the 3/4 students, robotics, rockets, green power, solar power, Black Butte bubblology, tessellations, a visit to the sky lab and a cloud chamber.
