Satanta Science and History Club Takes Biennial Trip
Satanta High School (SHS) students involved in the school’s Science and History Club worked over the course of two years to raise funds to take an educational trip across Kansas this spring. This trip took place on April 27-29. Mr. Tim Dusin, SHS social science instructor, and Mrs. Crystal Naylor, SHS science instructor, were the sponsors who accompanied these high schoolers on their trip. Maureen Wagner drove the Satanta activity bus for three-day adventure.
The schedule for the trip included a Saturday stop at the Cosmosphere in Hutchinson where students experienced experiments with live fire and visited the museum. The journey continued that day at Tanganyika Wildlife park near Wichita where they were able to feed the giraffes and ride camels. They stayed the night in Kansas City on Saturday night.
On Sunday, the trip continued with a visit to the World War I museum in Kansas City where students were able to honor the lives that were lost in that terrible war. Saturday ended with a Kansas City Royals game against the Las Angeles Angels.
After the game, the students traveled to Topeka for their final stop. On Monday, students were able to visit the Kansas Supreme Court and the state capitol. Leslie Cabrera says, “It was a great educational experience. I am thankful for the school letting us go and for our teachers and Mrs. Wagner for helping us make this trip a memorable one.”
