Emerson's Science Olympiad Experiments are sure to be a hit this February!

Posted by Vanessa Cowhey on Dec 4, 2009

Nine fun and exciting experiments have been chosen for Emerson’s Science Olympiad to be held on February 23, 2010 from 6:15 to 8:00 pm. These hands-on learning activities have been chosen to spark the imagination and illuminate the world of Science.  The students will be placed on 4 person teams and rotate through a series of 3 amazing science experiments.  60 parent volunteers will be needed to lead the teams or to help run the experiments. Look for registration the last week of January and please consider helping out.
