ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY– Students will learn about the anatomy and physiology of selected body systems, including skeletal, muscular and integumentary systems. 

CIRCUIT LAB– Students will learn about electricity and magnetism, as well as design and build simple circuits.

DISEASE DETECTIVES – Students will use investigative skills in the scientific study of the spread of disease, injury, health and disability in populations.

ELASTIC LAUNCHED GLIDER – Students design, construct and test elastic launched gliders to achieve the maximum time aloft.

GAME ON -Students will design and build an original computer game using the program Scratch, incorporating scientific themes provided by the instructor. 

MYSTERY ARCHITECTURE – Teams will be given a bag of building materials and instructions for designing and building a device that can be tested.

ROLLER COASTERS – Students will design, build, and test a roller coaster track to guide a vehicle that uses gravitational potential energy as its sole means of propulsion.

TOWERS & BRIDGES – Students will design and build towers and bridges to achieve the highest structural efficiency.


We are still hoping to recruit more parent volunteers to teach classes!
Do you love science? Do you love working with kids?  Then WE NEED YOU!  Please consider volunteering to teach a non-competitive Science Olympiad course for the D39 Educational Foundation!  All instructors will receive one free class for a student in their household as a small token of appreciation for their time. 
If interested, please complete this survey to indicate which courses might be of interest to you, and what days/times you are available.
