Looking For Middle School Science Olympiad CoachesSTEAM will be offering a Science Olympiad Club for middle schoolers again this year. The goal of the club is provide our students an opportunity to continue their enthusiasm for science established during their WESO years and to enhance our middle schoolers’ science education at STEAM. There are 23 events that the STEAM team could field participants in. This program can only happen with the support of coaches willing to volunteer to mentor/teach our students. If you love science, please consider being a coach for our Middle School SO club. To learn more about a middle school SO event, you will find the list of events, brief descriptions and a website link for more details is below. If you find an event that you would like to coach, contact me with the following info - your name, the event you are interested in coaching, time availability (days and times that you can hold practices after school or on the weekends). Once coaches have been identified, I can begin recruiting for the SO club. I will be recruiting coaches now through Friday, Oct 28. A coaches meeting is set for Wednesday, Nov 2, 6:30-7:30 in the MPR.
Thank you for your interest and support.
