ADA HIGH SCIENCE CLUB--OKLAHOMA
At present we have over 35 members. The club is called the Ada High Science Club and will retain that name but the members have enthusiastically embraced the Biology Club as a new integral part. Our theme this year is the planets. Often our themes are derived from T-shirt ideas, and this year we mourn the lose of Pluto from planetary status. I have always held that the science club is open to all science interests, and over the 14 years I have been sponsor, we have dipped into all aspects of the sciences.
Our latest project is to renovate the garden by the school's front door. We have a mentor from the local university who is helping the students in teaching them how to do a professional garden and supplying the plants, tools and other resources for them to get the job done.
We are taking a field trip on November 15th (which happens to be National Recycling Day) to the Wakefield Inn - a local B&B and vineyard owned by our Family and Consumer Science teacher that is about 30 miles out in the country. The students will help in the vineyard, consume a 5 course buffet style dinner, play some games, and star watch with a local astronomy buff who will guide them through the constellations and Milky Way. We usually wait until after stargazing to have desert.
We are presently running a fund raiser with Little Caesar's Pizza.
