Dear FSAPS Families,
For those of you who may not know me, my name is Ms. Przedpelski. This year, Ms. Minor and I are working together as the head coaches for Elementary Science Olympiad. We are looking forward to a great year with the students who have been chosen to be a part of our Academic Team. However, we are still in need of coaches for some of our events this year. Please take a moment to read through the events that need a coach, and let us know if you would be interested in volunteering your time one afternoon a week to coach for Elementary Science Olympiad.
Monday Afternoon Events still needing a coach:
Deep Blue Sea – This event tests students’ knowledge about oceanography.
Rock Hound – Students will prepare charts, identify various rocks and minerals, and describe their characteristics.
Straw Tower – This is a competition in which each team (2 people) is attempting to build the strongest straw tower. Each team will construct a tower using only 50 drinking straws and 20 straight pins.
Thursday Afternoon Events still needing a coach:
Save our Earth- Students are to identify the major causes of harm to our earth and explain ways to prevent this.
Don’t Bug Me – The contestants are to distinguish insects from non-insects, identify various body parts, characteristics, habitats, ecological significance, life cycles, and major classes and orders of arthropods.
Grasp A Graph – The objective is to develop the skills of collecting and organizing information using pictographs, bar, line, and pie graphs to solve problems.
Which Way’s North? – Teams of up to two students will attempt to navigate themselves around a state road map.
If you have any questions, or if any of these events look like something you would be interested in coaching – please let me know firstname.lastname@example.org.
