SCIENTIFICA! This photo journal images the summer science education camping experience of Venture Crew 4371 at Wah-Tut-Ca Scout Reservation August 13-19. Crew 4371 is a stem-based program. The Crew meets monthly to discuss and plan ongoing scientific research projects. The crew also conducts quarterly field studies at Wah-Tut-Ca Scout Reservation. Scientifica is the largest of these field studies. We expect stories to be told for many years to come of this epic adventure. In our never-ending search for what is over there we hiked to the end of the universe-Wah-Tut-Ca’s eastern boundary. We survived flash floods of almost biblical proportions. We sailed across Northwood Lake and tubed into its sunsets. Some Crewmembers overcame fear of arachnids, heights and melons in motion. Drones soared and we all gained a respect for swarming hymenoptera. We also examined and found evidence of ancient rivers. We calculated elevations of Wah-Tut-Ca’s outer limits… we grew and we had fun. Faculty and Staff Scientifica Faculty was made up of adult science and engineering professionals and educators. We would like to thank the Scientifica faculty: George D. Kouloheras Chuck Longshore Darlene Longshore Joshua Ratty Daniel Smith Chris Eddie Eckelkamp Daniel Hugh Farrell Brian Lobao Emily B. Lobao Helen Pickard Ted Wicks We would also like to thank members of the 2014 Wah-Tut-Ca staff for their support.
