King Science Presents Annual SET for Life Conference

Students at King Science & Technology Magnet Middle School explored a wide range of topics in science, engineering and technology during the second annual SET (Science, Engineering, Technology) for Life Conference in December. The conference was held in conjunction with the annual seventh- and eighth-grade science fair.

Presenters from nearly 30 different organizations and companies—including the University of Nebraska at Omaha, Lauritzen Gardens, OPPD, Union Pacific, AIM Institute, OPS Magnet High Schools and Metropolitan Community College—shared information with students on science, engineering and technology subjects, as well as future educational opportunities. Students took part in a variety of hands-on sessions including VEX Robotics challenges, "Healthcare Jeopardy," an Information Technology hardware demonstration and forensic science observations.

Additionally, nearly 45 guest judges from the community visited to evaluate seventh- and eighth-grade science projects.
