Oconto Falls High School is running a science club for the 2016-2017 school year.

During the summer, science teachers from the school were contacted to see if there might be interest in having an active science club.

During the first week of school, an informational meeting was held to determine if there were enough students interested. Co-advisers Candis Behnke and Connie Rauterkus were surprised to learn 46 students were interested in joining.

At the first meeting, junior Dylan Senn was elect club president. The rest of the officer team is Cameron Box, vice president, Peter Murphy, secretary, Sam Molitor, treasurer, Corrina Romandine, reporter, and Eliza Bradford and Noah Kokko-Ludemann, events coordinators.

The club has developed a list of goals, which are increasing awareness of science at all age levels, strengthening the school’s science program through the addition of classes and equipment, promoting community service, and providing increased information and experiences in science-related occupations.

To accomplish its goals, the club plans to coordinate events such as science field trips, experiments, suggesting new science classes for the future, talking with elementary and middle school students about science, community service events and more.

The club held a stargazing event in October. Participants were asked to donate a canned food item as an entrance fee.
