Collaborative efforts ignite passion for science

Sara Harp Minter Elementary Science Olympiad team receives support from mentors at Whitewater High School to enhance their science skills and prepare for competitions. 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.

Minter enrichment teacher Stacy McClanahan, 1st-grade teacher Kristi Soong, and Whitewater High science teachers Kathryn Dupree and Shelley Kozlowski work together to facilitate this collaboration between the students. The goal is to inspire a love for science and build relationships within the Whitewater community. The mentors from Whitewater High demonstrate a strong desire to develop relationships and mentor the Mountain Lions, for which Minter is grateful.

The mentors not only help the students prepare for competitions but also support them during the big events. They are passionate about science, as evidenced by their involvement with the Whitewater STEAM bus. This shared passion for science has led some students to continue competing in Science Olympiad even in middle school.
