EVERYTHING YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT HYDROPHOBIC POLYMERS BUT WERE TOO AFRAID TO ASK: Our Chemistry students got hands-on Wednesday at CMU's museum exhibit "A Century of Science & Service." Students got to explore sodium polyacrylate and its super absorbent properties and learned about hydrophobic and hydrophilic polymers and their applications. The museum gave the students a crossword puzzle to guide them in exploring the exhibit, which is sponsored and co-developed by the Midland branch of the American Chemical Society to commemorate its centennial. As a fitting send-off, the museum gave all the students an egg of Silly Putty.

AN INK-STAINED EYE-OPENER: Beaverton students from Mrs. Grice's Journalism and Yearbook classes hopped on a bus to the Midland Daily News this morning and were welcomed into the newsroom with cookies, brownies and a big ol' batch of useful information about newspaper careers. MDN Editor Dave Clark walked students through the important aspects of sourcing a story and interviewing techniques. The students then immediately turned Mr. Clark's own lesson against him, peppering him with questions about his career in the media. Thanks to Mr. Clark and reporter Tess DeGayner for such a valuable look behind the curtain. #WritersWrite #WritersRead #GoBeavers
