The Coolidge Science team is off to Nationals at Fort Collins, Colorado.  This year the Coolidge Team won its 25th State Title earlier this year at Assumption College.
The Team is comprised of 6th, 7th and 8th grade students who compete in the Science Olympiad program.  The Olympiad consists of 23 events covering diverse science and engineering areas.  This years events include:  herpetology; hovercraft; potions and poisons; and rocks and minerals.
The Team spends many hours practicing with the help of many volunteer Coaches, including Rotarian Mark Beckley.  This photo above shows Coach Mark presenting the Coolidge Science Team with Rotary's donation of $500.00 at their Rally on May 15.  Mark is a dedicated Coach and has been with the Team for many years.  Rotary is proud to support their exemplary efforts as we have done in the past.
The Coolidge Science team must fundraise to cover the costs of materials and supplies and the costs of bringing the Team and supplies to competitions.  The Team is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization.  You can find more information or donate to them here.
Good luck in Colorado.  Reading is proud!
