July 20– Hockey Scholar Workshop (limit 20 kids) 1-3 PM

The National Hockey League (NHL) and the National Hockey League Players’ Association (NHLPA) have partnered to create a web-based course that teaches science, technology, engineering and math and how these are part of the game of hockey.  Mr. Brandon Wright, science instructor at CCHS, will lead the 2-hour hands-on workshop that concentrates on things like angles, rates and ratios, states of matter, force and energy.  You will have a ton of fun with hockey as you realize the science behind the game.  The workshop will be limited to 20 children in grades 5-8 this past year.
Those who complete the 2-hour course will receive free tickets to a hockey game in Kearney in September, compliments of the Kearney Storm Hockey Team.
