Class Act: Science Expo
Helena College is preparing for its first annual Science Expo this Saturday.
In this week's Class Act, Beartooth NBC’s Drew Steele went to find out about the event and view a unique exhibit. Helena College is prepping for its first annual science expo, displaying several types of careers in the scientific field.
Geology and Water Resources Professor, Christopher Matson, says the public event is meant to be hands on.
Matson says, "What they're learning here can be really applied in the real world that we can take out many of the things that we're doing here in the laboratory and demonstrates and they can go into successful careers."
Beartooth NBC’s Drew Steele, says, "One of the exhibits being utilized at the science expo is a 23 foot tall, 137 foot long Seismosaurus skeleton which takes 3 days to put together."
Matson says the pose-able Dino will be used to help explain just how big animals were. The Science Expo is not only educating it's students but also the Helena community in the many areas of science. That's what makes Helena College a Class Act.
The Science Expo is taking place this Saturday, October 13th, at the Helena College campus. It's free to the public and begins at 10:00 am and goes until 3:00 pm. Kids of all ages are encouraged to come.
