STEM Committee News: April 2013

Washtenaw Elementary Science Olympiad, the Ann Arbor Hands On Museum, and the STEM Fair…. so many exciting STEM events are coming up in April!

The Washtenaw Elementary Science Olympiad tournament will be held on Saturday, April 20, at Pioneer High School. Honey Creek’s WESO teams and coaches have been working hard, and we wish them the best of luck! Even if you are not on the team, you can check it out for next year— hands-on activities which are open to the public will be going on all day.

Friday, April 26 is STEM Celebration Day at Honey Creek! In the morning, the Ann Arbor Hands On Museum will give a presentation to the students, and in the afternoon (from 5:30-8pm), there will be the Honey Creek STEM Fair! If you haven’t started thinking about a project for the STEM Fair yet, now is the time! The STEM Fair will feature students’ STEM projects, prizes for all participants, a potluck dinner, the return of the Honey Creek trebuchet, microfossils and microscopes, and many more exciting hands-on activities. Registration forms were emailed at the beginning of April, and can also be found on the STEM bulletin board (across from the hall conference room). An online registration form will be available soon. Students of all ages are invited to enter a project, and everyone– even if you haven’t done a project– is invited to the STEM Fair for food and fun activities!

And finally, the NASA team (comprising of Honey Creek Alumni: Laria Reynolds, Kaya Kurdak, Alex Quinn, Matthew Koziol, Will Brighton, and current Honey Creek Students: Zoe Jackson, Evan Fortson, and Patrick Quinn) has won first place for the 9th grade level, large team division. (3 divisions per grade level, 7th – 12th). This is a national competition, through NASA and the National Space Society. They have been invited to attend the International Space Development Conference, in San Diego, and present their project at the conference. Congratulations for this wonderful accomplishment!
