Abbot Students to Compete in Science Olympiad
Come cheer on your Abbot WESO team on Saturday May 30, 2015 at Pioneer High School. What is WESO? Washtenaw Elementary Science Olympiad is a fun hands on Science team. Our WESO program is the largest Science Olympiad in the state of Michigan. WESO is dedicated to increasing a student's interest in science and helping to instill a love of science in young students.
This year Abbot will have 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade teams participating. Our teams have worked very hard in their field of study for the big day. They will compete against many other Washtenaw County elementary schools. Award ceremonies are open to the public. Award times are: 2nd grade 11 a.m., 3rd grade 2 p.m., 4th grade 5 p.m. and 5th grade 8 p.m.
There will also be many fun interactive science booths at the event for you to enjoy. The public will also be able to spectate two events. These events are Water Rockets and On Target. Abbot 3rd graders will launch their water rockets in the back field at 9:15 a.m. and 4th graders launching at 2:15 p.m. Inside the gym, come watch straw rockets take flight aiming for a specific target! On Target 3rd grade teams will build and fly their rockets at 12:30 p.m and 5th graders will build and fly at 6:50 p.m. Hope to see you there. Go Abbot All Stars!
