Opportunity # 2

Young Scientist Challenge

Who knows…we may have a young scientist out there ready to change the world! Check this out if your child has an interest in this area.

It looks like the contest is due April 22 and there are several resources on the site including previous winners, insider tips, science lesson plans, and experiments.

Opportunity # 3

PhET

PhET is a site filled with free online physics, chemistry, biology, earth science, and math simulations.  Find a simulation or two or three or four by clicking on the link below.  When you leave a comment, list the name of the simulation(s) you explored and then share something new you learned.  Playing the simulation might also prompt you to do a little more research on the topic.  List that information as well!

Click on a simulation and then click Run Now!  Have fun exploring!

 

   EY Math Opportunity

We took the 4th Math Olympiad this week.   We will work through strategies to solve the contest problems next week, and I will offer follow up problems that will allow the children to practice!
