Goal

Register and take 15 +/- students to compete in the Science Olympiad competition in Hillsborough Co. then hopefully to Orlando and maybe to the U.S. competition. We also explore, research, experiment before the competition. 

 

What will be done with my students

Students are responsible for researching the events, interpret the rules, learn procedures, do experimentation, engineer and build projects. As teachers we are there for assistance and interpretation as well as mentoring as needed. We work with the students to encourage them to reach deep into the subject or problem to look for unique solutions. 

 

Benefits to my students

The students that participate extend their knowledge on engineering, science, math and technology subjects. They learn to focus and study as well as integrity in competing. They learn perseverance as they try and evaluate the product or fail in the task and re-engineer. They learn team work, they do not compete or build or study alone they work as a team. They explore different careers that are connected to their task as well as interact with adults from those careers. The skills they learn help them at school, at home, and in the community. Below are the goals and mission
of the Science Olympiad:
SCIENCE OLYMPIAD MISSION

Science Olympiad is a national non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of K-12 science education, increasing male, female and minority interest in science, creating a technologically-literate workforce and providing recognition for outstanding achievement by both students and teachers. These goals are achieved by participating in Science Olympiad tournaments and non-competitive events, incorporating Science Olympiad into classroom curriculum and attending teacher training institutes.

SCIENCE OLYMPIAD GOALS

To create a passion for learning science by supporting elementary and secondary Science Olympiad tournaments at building, district, county, state and national levels with an emphasis on teamwork and a commitment to excellence.

To improve the quality of K-12 science education throughout the nation by changing the way science is perceived and the way it is taught (with an emphasis on problem solving and hands-on, minds-on constructivist learning practices). This goal is accomplished through in-depth core curriculum training workshops and the distribution of curriculum materials.

To celebrate and recognize the outstanding achievement of both students and teachers in the areas of science and technology by awarding thousand of certificates, medals, trophies and scholarships.

To promote partnerships among community, businesses, industry, government and education.

SCIENCE OLYMPIAD TOURNAMENT GOALS

To bring science to life, to show how science works, to emphasize problem solving aspects of science and the understanding of science concepts.

To develop teamwork and cooperative learning strategies among students.

To make science education more exciting so more students will enroll in science courses and engage in other science activities like science reading, fairs, meetings and field trips.

To promote high levels of achievement and a commitment to excellence, to demonstrate that American students can perform at levels that surpasses expectations of even practicing scientists and engineers.

To attract more students particularly females and minorities to professional and technical careers in science, technology and science teaching. 

 

Describe the Students

Our students are part of the accelerated science here at Carwise. They are students that are working hard to finish all of their middle school science requirements by 7th grade and then can earn a high school credit for their 8th grade science class that is based on 9-12 standards. They are from all different groups, but all have a high success in science.  

 

Budget Narrative

We need $235. for the team of 15 registration.
As a team we have each student wear a team t-shirt that helps us keep track of them and gives them team pride each is approximately $10. plus two coach shirts. The supplies are for test experiments at school, often we need powders for forensics, baking supplies for food science, etc these are consumable supplies $100. 

 

Items

# Item Cost
1 Team Registration $235.00
2 Team Shirts $165.00
3 Supplies - for experiments $100.00
