SCIENCE MENTORS NEEDED

--Contributed by Chris Moorman

Dear NC ACS Local Section Members,

My name is Chris Moorman. My husband Ed Holub and I coach the Science Olympiad team at Phillips Middle School in Chapel Hill. We restarted the program last year after 5-6 years of it not occurring. Science Olympiad is like a science track meet with 23 events in which teams of two students compete. Some of these events involve building knowledge, such as knowledge of astronomy, anatomy, ecology, or experimental design and some events involve building things, such as rockets, bridges, catapults, or a new cookie recipe. A description of all events can be found at:

www.sciencenc.com/Tournament_information/events_list_2009.cfm.

Phillips took 1st place in the regional tournament and 7th place in the state last year! We were thrilled for the students. It was a wonderful experience for the students, over half of which were girls. Our problem is that we are not scientists. I am a business school professor and my husband is a businessman. However, we are committed to motivating the next generation of scientists through programs like Science Olympiad! To make our program work, we need to recruit scientists and/or science students to coach the 23 two-person event teams. Last year our team had help from three terrific UNC students, one staff member from Morehead, one of the school's science teachers, and a handful of energetic, science-minded parents. However, we were really stretched. Ed and I coach a few of the teams ourselves as well as handle all the administrative and fundraising activities for the team.

We are writing to ask if you might volunteer to help our team or recommend students to volunteer. Volunteers would coach one or two of the 23 two-person teams. There are study aids and references available. The kids do most of the learning themselves, but there are times when they need help and encouragement. The students really react well to working with mentors. Aside from learning about their events, the students have an opportunity to learn about careers in science-related fields. We anticipate you would meet with the students 8-10 times, with a heavier concentration of meetings from February . April as the regional and state tournaments get closer. Because the teams are only two students, it's usually easy to fit everyone's schedules.

If you can take some time to help these young scientists, please contact Chris and Ed at (919) 942-1915, moorman@duke.edu, or eholub@mindspring.com.

Thank you!


2009 POLYED AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN POLYMER EDUCATION FOR MIDDLE LEVEL AND HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS

We are now accepting applications for the 2009 Excellence in Polymer Education Award. This national award recognizes innovative and successful contributions to the integration of polymer chemistry into pre-college curricula.
