Lanphier High School in Springfield Il. now has a paranormal club thanks to Mr. Dave Roberts and the members of CAPS. It has become extremely popular in a short period of time and is growing daily.
The club's mission is to give students the opportunity to discuss their beliefs and experiences in a non threatening environment, learn the scientific method of investigating, develop social and team work skills, and have fun!! Students will collect and review evidence, research potential locations, and present their findings with the rest of the group. Field trips to potentially haunted locations and opportunities to meet and learn from other investigators will also be part of the experience.
All meetings will be held from 4pm to 5:15pm in room 25 unless notified otherwise. Field trips will be added to the schedule as determined by the club, although these may need to wait until the Spring warm-up. Guest speakers will be scheduled and listed on the LPC Calendar of Events
Lanphier Paranormal Club Goals
LPC goals are to give students the opportunity to express their insight, experiences, and beliefs in things paranormal (beyond the range of normal experience or current scientific explanation) and to expand their knowledge through a variety of learning activities.
The objectives of the club include the following:
A) Allow students a forum to freely discuss their experiences and possible explanations for these experiences.
B) Give students the opportunity to read and research paranormal events and places.
C) Teach interested students investigative techniques used by experienced investigators.
D) Allow students to develop hands-on experience with some of the technology preferred by investigators using the scientific approach.
E) Give students the opportunity to visit first hand, locations thought to have paranormal activity, (a small cost may be involved)
F) Give students the opportunity to meet and interact with other paranormal investigators and authors of paranormal literature.
G) Teach students social skills and team work.
This is a club for students truly interested in the paranormal and who are willing to use this as an educational experience. Students who are not serious and do not wish to use this as a learning experience will not be allowed to participate.
