Ty Smith, director of the Native American Cultural Center at Colorado State University, introduces Red Cloud Indian School students to the resources and people that will help them if they wish pursue a degree at CSU after the water sustainability lecture they attended Nov. 20. “The topic today relates to water scarcity and how that is becoming greater and greater,” Smith said. “I’d like them to take away how this is applicable to their home communities.”
Aden, Chayton and Norman from the Red Cloud Indian School test out their experiment with Brian Jones at the Colorado State University Little Shop of Physics workshop Nov. 20. The project shoots water vapor out of a drum that creates colorful puffs of smoke when lit from the front. The experiments made by the students will be put into a museum on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, as the museum requested local science projects for the displays.
Brian Jones, the director of the Little Shop of Physics at Colorado State University, demonstrates an experiment idea for the Red Cloud Indian School students who attended his workshop Nov. 20. “It’s really been magical; they’re coming up with all kinds of amazing ideas,” Jones said.

Julian from Red Cloud Indian School and Brian Jones work together at the Little Shop of Physics workshop to create a water vapor tornado from fans and tubes at Colorado State University Nov. 20. The experiments made by the students will be put into a museum in Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, as the museum requested local science projects for the displays.
