MATHIOWETZ CHILDREN TAKE PART IN SIMULATED FOSSIL DIG AND TAKE SDSM& T’S MINI- INDY CAR FOR AN IMAGINARY TEST DRIVE
During a recent visit to Storybook Island in Rapid City, SD this summer, Brett, Rachel and Chad Mathiowetz of Sleepy Eye had a chance to take part in a simulated paleontology dig and other hands- on Museum in Motion science and engineering exhibits sponsored by the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology ( SDSM& T). They are the children of Brian and Ronda Mathiowetz of Sleepy Eye.
The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology ( SDSM& T) was Storybook Island’s Sponsor- For- A- Day when the Mathiowetz family visited the popular children’s park in Rapid City. In addition to the Museum in Motion exhibits, SDSM& T also displayed its Mini- Indy, Mini- Baja, solar car, and concrete canoe that Tech students designed, built and raced in national competitions earlier this year.
