Sometimes "Science" is a scary word. My goal is to turn that word into everyday language that enriches science experiences and encourages students to consider science as a career. Your donations to the "Science Alive" project will provide elementary students with an opportunity to become scientists. These materials will be used in the regular 5th grade science classroom as well as in an after-school science club for students in grades 3-5. The hope for this club is to generate interest in participating in our school's first Science Olympiad team. Requested materials will allow students to design and test bottle rockets, with a goal of creating a device that will stay aloft as long as possible. Students will strengthen mathematical skills as they work together to estimate and measure basic units of length, weight, volume and temperature, and perform calculations including area, perimeter, fractions, addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. They will apply concepts of forces and motion as they build and demonstrate simple machines. Through exploration with the rock and mineral collection, they will gain a better understanding of rocks and minerals as well as the rock cycle and using geologic maps. They will use investigative skills to become "Super Sleuths" as they solve a mystery scenario by identifying unknown powders and distinguishing between different types of fingerprints and tool marks. The requested supplies and activities are taken directly from the NC Science Olympiad Coaches Handbook, and will be necessary for students to fully implement activities from the Olympiad.
