Stay Tuned for Science Olympiad 2018 Classes
District 39 Educational Foundation offers non-competitive courses ranging from Disease Detectives to Roller Coasters to Bottle Rockets and more. Registration will occur in late fall for winter classes.
Last year, over 100 students participated in 13 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) enrichment courses taught by volunteer leaders from the D39 community, many of them practicing scientists.
Students designed and built robots, identified the perpetrator of a crime, explored the solar system with a NASA scientist, built working musical instruments, just to name some of the amazing opportunities available with Science Olympiad.
The Foundation is proud to offer this nationally acclaimed program to HMS and WJHS students, and it would not be possible without the wonderful group of volunteer leaders and teachers. Plans are underway for another exciting year of enrichment. Registration will begin in October. Enrollment is limited and courses fill quickly. Information will be available on the Foundation’s website.
