RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — Professors and students from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology will be hosting an event in which they’ll attempt to bust science myths.
The school’s physics, chemistry and civil engineering departments will present myths and try to prove or disprove them during a presentation scheduled for Feb. 17. The free event is open to the public and is part of the school’s 2015 Engineers Week.
As part of the week-long celebration, dozens of middle and high schools students are expected to converge on the Rapid City campus for tours and demonstrations by academic departments, a visit to the Museum of Geology and a NASA-related presentation.
