Middle School grades 6-8

 

What We Do

We emphasize applied science through local experiences.

Meetings generally encompass:
• Guest speakers from scientific professions
• Interactive experiments & projects
• Labs
• Student-led presentations
• Event demonstrations
• Science studies
• Field trips
• Games, food, friends and fun

Parent Role

Our middle school team is coached by the parents and is not a drop off group like the high school team.

​Mentorship

The high school team provides regular mentorship to the middle school team, both for specific event preparation and for related science event foundational information. Parents provide mentorship through helping our students improve their organizational and study skills, and also serving as points of contact for specific events within the team. Parents do not need science experience in order to mentor our competitors.

Am I homeschooled if…

Do you take classes part-time at an institution or online, and wonder if that means you can’t participate on this team? We have students who attend ACC, REACH, One Day, Coursera, and more. To be considered homeschooled you must not be enrolled full-time anywhere or at a charter or private school or online school, yet you can be enrolled part-time.
