On Monday April 30 2018 we’ll host a hands-on open house for families interested in learning more about the Central Texas Science Team.
Location: VFW Oak Hill, 7614 Thomas Springs Rd., Austin TX
For elementary, middle, and high school-age students interested in Science Olympiad, and high school students interested in next year’s Costa Rica trip.
Central Texas Science Team offers:
* noncompetitive elementary science club
* competitive middle and high school Science Olympiad teams
* annual summer field research in Costa Rica (studying antibiotic potentials from leaf-cutter ants)
We have even more science opportunities planned for next year!
Our elementary club’s science projects this year involved: anatomy, aerodynamics, circuitry, thermodynamics, metric mastery, pond ecology, rocks & minerals, and science pentathlon.
For our middle and high school teams, our mission is to be a competitive team while fostering our students’ enthusiasm for science. Science Olympiad empowers students to BE scientists and DO science even before getting to college – in 28 different events ranging from biology, engineering, natural sciences, conservation, physics, chemistry, to technology and also spanning study, lab, and build events.
Here’s a neat article about Science Olympiad
