Experiments Announced for Emerson's Science Olympiad Fun Night

Posted by Joan Letourneau on Jan 26, 2011

Nine fun and exciting experiments (described below) have been chosen for Emerson School’s 2nd Annual Science Olympiad Fun Night to be held from 6:00 to 8:00 pm on Monday, March 14, 2011.

These hands-on learning activities have been chosen to spark the imagination and illuminate the world of science! Students will be placed on four-person teams that will rotate through a series of three amazing science experiments. Sixty parent volunteers will be needed to lead the teams or to help run the experiments.

Look for online registration in mid-February, and please consider helping out.

  • Animal Trackers – Directed by an expert from the Lakeview Nature Center, students will use their observation skills to determine which animal made that track.
