WHS students create temporary museum to explain natural phenomenon

To help explain the science behind hurricanes, tornadoes, floods and mudslides, blizzards, earthquakes, and wildfires and droughts, Waynesville High School students created a Science 9 Museum of Natural Phenomenon and Technology.  

 

Students were assigned a natural phenomenon and then focused on one of four subgroups: 

- safety

- history/records

- science behind how the natural phenomenon forms 

- technological advancements that have been developed throughout the years to survive, overcome or better manage the natural disaster

 

The Science 9 teachers who participated in the project included Kelly Jackson, Jon Black and Tammy Davison.

 

The museum opened to students, teachers and administrators Dec. 14-16. Museum guests included in the photos are School Board Member Janel Rowell; Dr. Brian Henry, superintendent; Hilary Bales, assistant superintendent of personnel services; Dr. Jason Whitt, WHS principal; and Mike Henson, director of curriculum and instructional technology.
