Science Olympiad Coaches Needed!

The 9th Annual Washtenaw Elementary Science Olympiad is coming up at the end of the school year, and enthusiastic coaches are needed to help prepare our kids for the tournament!
There are 18 different events that test different skills.  Coaches for the following events are still needed: Chopper Challenge, Mystery Architecture, Potions, Science Jeopardy, Sink or Float, Straw Tower, and What Went By (the previous Circuits coach is also willing to train a new coach). Event descriptions can be found at . Get a friend and coach an event together!
Coaches are responsible for holding practices (usually starting in February), staying with kids until they are all picked up, ranking the kids in your event so a team can be put together, putting together a display for science night (possibly interactive in some events), guiding our kids to and from your event on Tournament Day. 
If you are interested in coaching, please contact Vivian Lin and Erika Levin, this year's King Elementary Science Olympiad co-head coaches, at and .
Student signups for Science Olympiad will be in January--keep a lookout for the signup link in the eNotes then!
