Palacios High School’s WIT and POWER SET Students Host the 5th annual Science on Saturday

March 21, 2016

    Palacios High School's WIT and POWER SET students hosted the 5th annual Science on Saturday (SOS) on February 27th. The event, sponsored by the Nuclear Power Institute (NPI), highlighted fun and educational science experiments and demonstrated by PHS WIT and POWER SET students. SOS is an exciting science program for the young and young at heart, presented free of charge to all who attend. This year, additional demonstrations were presented by Wharton County Junior College (WCJC) instructors from various departments, including nuclear processing, and digital engineering. There were also experiment booths presented by Phillips 66 Corporations and the South Texas Project Nuclear Power Company (STPNOC). Those who attended the event learned through interactive, hands-on activities that include fun with polymers, magnets, and neurons, as well as everyday products and household materials. This year's event was very successful, with approximately 300+ students and community members in attendance. PHS WIT and POWER SET students are supported by the NPI, in an effort to encourage students to pursue educational and career opportunities in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The NPI is a unique statewide partnership led by the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) and headquartered at Texas A&M University.
