Seniors from Minnesota Valley Lutheran High School in New Ulm, Minnesota, were on campus to experience some science at Bethany.
Bethany Lutheran College hosted a group of high school seniors from Minnesota Valley Lutheran (MVL) High School, New Ulm, Minnesota, on Tuesday, November 27, 2012. Heath Dobberpuhl, chemistry and physical science teacher at MVL brought the group to the campus. The students from MVL met with faculty members from Bethany’s math and science division to get a hands-on look at the science course offerings and facilities at Bethany.
The students worked with chemistry faculty members, Glenda Bossow, Matt Riehl, Eric Theiste, and Eric Woller. The students participated in a chemistry lab that illustrated the concept of 'limiting reagent.' They also completed a physics experiment on projectile motion using a "spud-gun" with physics instructor Nick Ollrich. Finally, the group met with biology faculty Chad Heins and Doyle Holbird where they learned about Bethany's Hawk Watch program and other birds of southern Minnesota.
Bethany Lutheran College is happy to host other high school science groups who are interested to learn more about college level science studies at Bethany Lutheran College. Interested high school science teachers may contact Dr. Eric Woller, Dean of Academic Affairs.
