The Hamilton High School Science Club started “Careers in Science” on Valentine’s Day February 14 with Dr. Kendall Ryter of GlaxoSmithKline, which has a production facility on the north end of Hamilton. He talked about his life as a professional chemist.

Tom Schmitt, Hamilton High School science teacher and Science Club advisor said about 20 students attended the first speech. In a school news release, Schmitt said the challenge for the speakers is simple…”You have 30 minutes to get kids excited about a career in science.”

Dr Ryter told the students about being an organic chemist at GlaxoSmithKline and advised them to “do something you are passionate about – otherwise it is a waste of your time.”

Science Club President Niall Gallagher Clancy is lining up more speakers for the remainder of the school year. Next up will be Chris Clancy, a Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks fisheries biologist.
