The Science Student Advisory Board’s Science Fair—complete with quirky science games, prizes, student clubs and crazy doughnuts from Voodoo Doughnuts in Portland—provided a welcome treat for students on Friday, June 9, 2017, on the Valley Library Quad near Kidder Hall. The pink Voodoo Doughnut truck always draws a crowd!
Sponsored by the Science Student Advisory Board, the event seeks to build a strong community through science by increasing the visibility and the love of science at OSU. The event is supported by generous science alumni, friends and the College of Science Board of Advisors.
There was plenty of chemistry, physics, mathematics, statistics, biology, microbiology, biohealth sciences and biochemistry talk along with the doughnuts. The end of spring term is here!
Students enjoyed a break from studying to catch up with friends and advisors or learn about all of the science clubs at OSU. Many of the clubs ran cool science games and demonstrations such as pin the oxygen on the hemoglobin, the Periodic Table Relay, and the antibiotic game. Students made origami, fractal crafts, putty stress balls and science bookmarks. Some lucky students won a prize and many enjoyed stopping by to talk science.
More than 700 students, faculty, advisors and staff enjoyed the Weird Science study break. It was a chance for a sweet treat, but also an opportunity to score helpful study tips for a P-Chem final exam, or to get science career advice from the Career Development Center.
Students showed their pride in science by sporting FREE stickers distributed at the event proclaiming “DO-NUT ever stop learning,” “Sprinkle me with knowledge,” and “Glazed but never confused.”
