Mid-Plains Community College Tour

February 14, 2019

This winter LMS 8th graders will have a chance to tour the campus of Mid-Plains Community College in North Platte.  We went last year and were thrilled to not only look around the campus, but have group discussions about students' futures, employment possibilities, potential scholarships, and had several opportunities to participate in hands-on activities that will be talked about for years to come.

Students buffed cars in the automotive class, made molds of teeth in the dental class, massaged a cow heart in the biology department, and studied leaves in botany class.  We also welded one-on-one with the college welding students, created circuits to make electricity, and watched a life-size dummy have blood drawn by a phletobomist - in - training.

Eating at their amazing cafeteria was also a delicious highlight of the trip!

Looking forward to the tours on Feb. 20 and March. 13.
