September - Intro to the Science Club

Oklahoma Section ACS Meeting on "Food Toxicology from Cradle to Grave"

October- Dr. Neuenschwander from SNU talked about "The Development of Nuclear Weapons and (God Forbid) Nuclear War"

November- We gathered together 26 Thanksgiving Baskets! with the help of the math club. That is 13x the amount of previous years. On Tuesday, science students delivered 9 baskets to people throughout the Shawnee area. Three more were delivered by Dr. Jordan and Kris Steele. On Tuesday night, Kris took the remaining 15 baskets to DHS. They apparently had a shortage of food and were going to be unable to fill all of the baskets they had promised. They were overjoyed upon recieving our food. I guess we are the science (and math) clubs that saved Thanksgiving!
