Casper BLMers Help Judge Poison Spider Elementary Science Fair
By Lesley Collins, Public Affairs Specialist, High Plains District
According to RMG Geologist, Karl Osvald, “This was a great opportunity for the BLM to demonstrate its ongoing commitment to supporting the local communities that are both its beneficiaries and partners in managing the national system of public lands.”
Students in the 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades presented a wide variety of projects ranging from what kind of music dogs like to the geo-hydrologic analysis of a local drainage.
Osvald noted, “Bringing in BLM science and technical professionals allows students to meet and benefit from the knowledge, experience, guidance and encouragement of working scientists and engineers that are not otherwise available in the small communities of the Rocky Mountain West.”
Poison Spider Science Teacher, Ryan Fuhrman, organized the event. Ryan’s primary goal of the annual Science Fair is to make the experience of learning science through experimental investigation and discovery both positive and rewarding for each student.
