Medals for our Science Olympians

My students need science medals and neck ribbons as rewards for the Science Olympiad competition being held this year.

My Students

Do you remember the excitement you had, when you earned a medal in recognition of your hard work? The is the same feeling I want the students to have as they compete in a science competition this year.

I work at a Title I, urban charter school.

Our school houses 400 K-8 students, supports full inclusion, and has a high percentage of low income families. This year, the 4th and 6th grade students have the opportunity to participate in the Science Olympiad. This is a day devoted to science. The students will work together to solve inquiry based science experiments based on a variety of science concepts.

My Project

During the Science Olympiad, the students will be working in groups to conduct experiments and investigation on various science concepts. These types of investigation will take place for an entire day and will require collaboration among peers. Throughout the day, the students will be able to earn points based on the work completed per science investigation. The medals and neck ribbons are needed to provide the students with rewards during the Science Olympiad Award Ceremony. The student teams will be recognized for the team work they utilized during the science experiments and honored at an awards ceremony.

Providing these young scientists with rewards for their hard work cannot be done without your help.

Together, we can turn these students into science Olympians and recognize them for efforts in science.
