Science Olympiad participants will use the money to pay for travel expenses and material costs for invitational, regional and national competitions.
What are the project’s major goals?
The main goal will be to cover travel expenses to nationals.
From the teacher’s perspective, how will this grant assist you in being more effective?
The grant will allow me to be a more effective coach by providing resources necessary to compete with other schools across the country.
From the student’s perspective, how will their educational experience be changed, enhanced or improved as a result of this project?
Students will spend more time on Olympiad and less on fundraising. Especially before nationals when there is only a three week window to raise ten or more thousand dollars.
How will you evaluate the effectiveness of this project?
The project will be evaluated based on our ability to fund our trip to Nationals.
