Heritage Elementary Marks Five Years of Science Olympiads
Posted on 03/24/2016

White House Heritage Elementary School students participated in the school’s Fifth Annual Science Olympiad on Friday, March 18. 2

 

Under the leadership of fifth grade teacher and chairperson for the day Jenni Kelton, each teacher planned a science experiment that corresponded to their grade level standard and every class within that grade rotated through all of the classroom experiments for that grade level.  Approximately 100 parent volunteers were in attendance for the day to help students conduct experiments. 

 

Third and fourth grade students participated in the “Eco-System Challenge,” where they learned about potential and kinetic energy though use of a catapult and also made "rain sticks" while learning about 1environmental impacts on the world's rainforests.

 

Fifth and sixth graders participated in a Pentathlon where they answered various health/exercise questions while completing five different exercises.

 

During the day, all students, staff and volunteers wear matching shirts that are designed each year.  According to principal Angie Freye, the Science Olympiad replaces the old science fair projects with a day of learning for the entire student body.
