science1 500MARSHALL COUNTY, Ky. (9/14/13) – On Thursday, Sept. 12 students in Mrs. Denita Allen and Mrs. Annie Futrell's science classes got to experience the new Mobile Science Activity Center.

The Marshall County Conservation office helped to bring the mobile lab to the students at SMMS. The lab was set up in a trailer outside of the school building. The students were able to walk through and have a hands-on approach to learning.
This mobile lab is brand new and was debuted at the State Fair this year. SMMS was only the 3rd school that it has been to.

In the lab students were able to use iPads to answer questions that the teacher gave and the answers went straight to the teacher, so there was instant feedback to tell who was paying attention.
According to school officials, the students did a wonderful job.
During the lab the students learned about the states of matter, they also were able to watch as the teacher mixed beeswax and vegetable oil together to create lip balm.
