Science, engineering festival held
HANCOCK — The first Copper Country Science and Engineering Festival took place at the Hancock Central High School Wednesday. The event featured 60 demonstrations and activities for fourth through seventh grade students from Hancock, Houghton, Chassell, Lake Linden-Hubbell, Calumet, and Dollar Bay-Tamarack City schools. The demonstrations and activities were run by Michigan Technological University students from eight student organizations, as well as by high school student volunteers from Lake Linden and Hancock High Schools.
“This has been in preparation for about two months now, which is much quicker than most of our events come together. Hancock was so excited to have us here and so adaptable,” said Mind Trekkers coordinator Jannah Brandt.
