Collaborative efforts ignite passion for science

Collaboration between Whitewater High and Sara Harp Minter Elementary Boosts Science Olympiad Team

Minter enrichment teacher Stacy McClanahan, 1st-grade teacher Kristi Soong, and Whitewater High science teachers Kathryn Dupree and Shelley Kozlowski have been working together to enhance the science skills of the Sara Harp Minter Elementary Science Olympiad team. The mentors from Whitewater High demonstrate a strong desire to develop relationships and mentor the Mountain Lions.

For the past three years, Whitewater High Science National Honor Society students have been volunteering to mentor Minter students. They visit the Mountain Lions on Friday mornings, bringing hands-on activities and games to help the students understand and strengthen their knowledge for the county competition. The mentors not only help the students prepare for competitions but also support them during big events.

The shared passion for science between the Whitewater High STEAM bus members has led some students to continue competing in Science Olympiad even in middle school. The goal of this collaboration is to inspire a love for science and build relationships within the Whitewater community. The mentors bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to their work with Minter, making it an invaluable resource for both parties involved.

The Sara Harp Minter Elementary Science Olympiad team is grateful for the support of its mentors at Whitewater High School. Their involvement has helped them grow as scientists and prepare them for future competitions. With their hard work and dedication, they are sure to achieve great things in science!
