Fulton Science Academy Pre-k Thru 3rd Grade Visited The Atlanta Botanical Garden

Pre- K thru 3rd grade FSA students had a wonderful trip to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens last week! Students were given an educational tour of the rain forest and desert exhibits where they able to learn about all kinds of unique plants and animals. 

This was especially exciting for 2nd grade as they were able to connect classroom learning of a frog's life cycle to that of the Poison Dart Frogs' in the exhibit. They also observed up close how plants adapt and defend themselves in different environments. Lunch was enjoyed in beautiful Piedmont Park as we were fortunate and missed the rain showers. Students' afternoons ended strolling through the colorful tulips and checking out the new children's exhibit in the gardens!

Fulton Science Academy Third Grade Market Day

Third-grade students engaged in a simulated market during Market Day. This STEAM-based project incorporated what students had learned in Social Studies about free market economics, as well as math and art skills. Students were given the task of choosing a product or service to sell, determining how much supply to create based on predicted demand, styling an advertisement to attract a target audience, and researching how to run a real business. This project was a tremendous success as students experienced real-world applications!

Not only did the third graders get to buy and sell from each other, but drew in crowds of parents, teachers, and even our middle and high school students! With an increase in demand, many students sold out of their one-of-a-kind products! Students sold everything from massages, to advice, sweet treats, slime, photo frames, and sports memorabilia. According to Rylar C., "Placement is everything when it comes to how much money you will get!" Thank you to all our teachers, staff, students, and parents for their participation and support!

Fulton Science Academy Middle School Model UN In New York

Members of Fulton Science Academy's Middle School Model UN team headed to the Big Apple this week to participate in a huge national competition. Bringing together hundreds of students from around the world, Model United Nations, also known as Model UN or MUN, is an educational simulation and/or academic competition in which students can learn about diplomacy, international relations, and the United Nations.

The trip came on the heels of many months of preparation for our students. We are so happy that they had a chance to participate in this experience and are very impressed by their efforts!

Fulton Science Academy High School History Academic Team Will Compete at the National

On March 18, two members of the FSA High School History Academic Team traveled to Newnan High School to compete in the 2017 Georgia State Championship History Bee and Bowl. Qualifying tests for the US Geography Olympiad and the US History Bowl were given at this event as well.

FSA team members, Sanjeev U. and Chloe R. participated. Sanjeev placed 2nd by taking the US Geography Olympiad Qualifying Test and is qualified to participate at nationals. Chloe took the US history qualifying test and her score qualifies her for competing in that event at nationals. As a team, they finished 3rd in the Junior Varsity Division of the History Bowl. This qualifies them to participate in the National History Bowl in Washington, D.C., April 21-23.

Congratulations to these hard-working, dedicated history students. As you will see below, lots of preparation and fast fingers can often mean the difference in results. Our new History Academic Team formed in January and students are already very competitive in the state level competition. They and other team mates will now be preparing for the national competition, so be sure and wish them good luck.

Fulton Science Academy Eighth Grader Places Second in State Science Fair

Congratulations to FSA eighth grader, Arul S., who had an amazing day today at the State Science Fair. Arul won both a Second Honors Category Award, as well as a special award, the 2nd Place Merial Biotechnology Award, for his project that addressed the impact of Gaba Enriched Food on Autism Spectrum Disorders. To achieve such an honor among so many compelling projects speaks volumes about Arul's very strong work ethic...we are so honored to have this incredible student as an FSA Mustang.
