Exciting school science news!(Or, why we have not been working on the house)

So, whew, its been a crazy few months! It has also been an exciting few months. We have both been working really hard at school and it has been paying off.

In March, Legend and Holly in my environmental science class won $100 and 3rd place for their work on a video about oregon forests and wildfires. The video is great!

On April 5th we had the Oregon State Science Olympiad Games. Our kids did great! The middle school team won a medal for their work on the wheeled vehicle and the high schoolers placed in a couple of events too like Mission Possible and Boomilever. Our team is small but we have some bright kids that work hard!
 


I also am excited to announce that the 8th grade boys in e-cybermission won 1st place in the state of Oregon for their work on a firefighting robot. They each won a $1000! Their parents and I are super stoked!

I was also selected as a Siemens 2014 STEM Institute Fellow. I get an all-expense paid trip to Washington DC to learn some great new science stuff and make new connections. We get to go see all the monuments, take a trip to the white house, see the smithsonian and so much more. This face is super excited!

We are now gearing up for the MATE underwater robotics competition and the Oregon Envirothon competition. I am excited to see what our kids can do!
