This year, Haas Hall’s Science CLub returned virtually to Warner Elementary, a rural, predominantly Native American school in Oklahoma, to share experiments involving light and combining electricity and magnets to move fluid. Science Club reached 64 fifth graders total in Mrs. Shry’s classroom at Warner!

Science Club member Rukaya Alrubaye taught students about phosphorescence and fluorescence. She provided real world examples such as coral and fluorescing sea turtles. Rukaya created experiments such as drawing with Vaseline on black construction paper and shining a black light on it to see it fluoresce in a dark room! Other experiments included writing with flashlights on phosphorescing paper and creating temporarily glowing signs. Rukaya enjoyed teaching the students about a part of the vast world of science, and the students enjoyed it too!
