More than 1,400 fifth graders explore career possibilities

Great Plains Discovery Zone introduced more than 1,400 fifth graders to eight different career areas. The students from Lawton Public Schools (and several other Great Plains partner schools) discovered how to make slime in Biomedical Sciences, lift a fingerprint in Criminal Justice and listen to their hearts by using a stethoscope in the Health Class. Students spent 15 minutes in each of the eight areas. Discovery Zone is one of several career awareness activities sponsored by Great Plains including a summer camp (Career Connections) for sixth, seventh and eighth graders and Tech Know Zone for eighth graders. The two week long Tech Know Zone will be held at the Lawton campus in late October.
