More than 1,000 area middle school students invaded NNU’s campus last week for the annual Science Extravaganza sponsored by the Idaho National Laboratories. Students learned from undergraduate students who provided them with a fun, hands-on experiences.

Dr. John Cossel, NNU professor of biology and leading herpetologist, looks forward to this time of year because, “it allows middle school age students to experience science at a different level and exposes the students to the thought of higher education as well as potential career opportunities in the science field.”

This year, students and teachers spent three days learning about photosynthesis, osmosis and robotics.  The physics club from Mountain View High School (Meridian) displayed their hover craft project. Students were also exposed to live, endangered amphibians and animals.

Science Extravaganza has been held at NNU for more than a decade.
