Our department offers a general science class for students studying to be elementary teachers. This class covers a wide variety of topics and has lots of fun labs. I hate to pick on these students since they're not science majors, but one particular student has really been cracking us up this semester. Here are 3 of her most special moments:
Professor: How many days are there in February during a leap year?
Student: Well, there are 31 days in a month, so... 32!
Student: I just misspelled my last name!
During an activity where they had to color a world map, this student's map was mostly green with little blue blobs. She had colored the land blue and the water green. Something didn't look quite right :)
We had a retirement party for one of our professor's this week. Dr. Reeves has been at ACU for 32 years, so we knew we had to do something special. We came up with a periodic table cake and some fun cookies. I think they turned out pretty cute! We're such nerds!
