The club Leko Kaden by consisted of members who wanted to be involved and learn about science in a fun way. On August 6, the Science Club took a trip to Yellowstone National Park. They spent four days and three nights in a Yellowstone Campground. During the trip they visited all of the natural wonders that compose Yellowstone, and they saw an abundance of wildlife. Mr. Goff, the Milford High School science teacher, planned and supervised the trip. Except for the cooking done by Kaden Leko and Mr. Goff, the trip was a complete success. The Science Club will be continuing on to another year. Students wanting to get involved need to talk to Mr. Goff. We plan on making next year's trip even better than this year's, but that will be hard. We hope everyone will come and join! !
