Dear FSAPS Families, 

For those of you who may not know me, my name is Ms. Przedpelski. This year, Ms. Minor and I are working together as the head coaches for Elementary Science Olympiad. We are looking forward to a great year with the students who have been chosen to be a part of our Academic Team. However, we are still in need of coaches for some of our events this year. Please take a moment to read through the events that need a coach, and let us know if you would be interested in volunteering your time one afternoon a week to coach for Elementary Science Olympiad. 

Monday Afternoon Events still needing a coach:

Deep Blue Sea - This event tests students' knowledge about oceanography.

Rock Hound - Students will prepare charts, identify various rocks and minerals, and describe their characteristics. 

Straw Tower - This is a competition in which each team (2 people) is attempting to build the strongest straw tower. Each team will construct a tower using only 50 drinking straws and 20 straight pins. 

Thursday Afternoon Events still needing a coach: 

Save our Earth-  Students are to identify the major causes of harm to our earth and explain ways to prevent this. 

Don't Bug Me - The contestants are to distinguish insects from non-insects, identify various body parts, characteristics, habitats, ecological significance, life cycles, and major classes and orders of arthropods. 

Grasp A Graph - The objective is to develop the skills of collecting and organizing information using pictographs, bar, line, and pie graphs to solve problems. 

Which Way's North? - Teams of up to two students will attempt to navigate themselves around a state road map. 

If you have any questions, or if any of these events look like something you would be interested in coaching - please let me know
