Standout science student earns invite to STEM day

Matt Trussell, Metcalf Middle School student, received many accolades and awards at the Metcalf Science Fair, the Twin Cities Regional Science Fair and the MN State Science Fair for the 2017-2018 school year.

The award that stood out the most for him, Matt said, was from DiaSorin, a diagnostic biotechnology company located in Stillwater. The company honored Matt with their Merit and Relativity Award at the state science fair. In addition to receiving this award, Matt and four other middle school students from Minnesota were invited to attend DiaSorin’s STEM Day.

'Oobleck' gives students hands on lesson in non-Newtonian fluids

During the last week of school at Metcalf Middle, students were given an opportunity to take their shoes off for some science fun! For 6th grade science, student standards are for physical science. In order to better understand matter and properties such as elasticity, students were able to run across a kiddie pool of oobleck which is a non-Newtonian fluid.  

District 191 middle school students will be part of dance performance on March 2
