Science Olympiad Takes 1st Place

Science Olympiad #3

This weekend, our Science Olympiad team excelled in the Camas Science Olympiad competition held at CHS. Ms. Hanley led our Woodburn team with a focus on collaboration, having fun, and sportsmanship. Our teams participated in four challenges: Spiffy Spans, Green Eggs Go Bam, Silly Sinking Ships, and Physicology Fun Chow Down.

 

When the results were tallied, Woodburn had four of the top five teams in the entire competition.  Woodburn will be housing the traveling  ESO trophy until next year’s competition.

 

When you see Ms. Hanley and any members of the team, give them a high five!

Coding For Kids Class

CODING FOR KIDS: Entry Levelcoding class photo

 

 

 

 

 

Learn the fundamentals of computer programming and have fun as you unlock the secrets of coding using Scratch 2.0. Scratch is a kid-friendly programming language developed in partnership by MIT’s Computer Science Department & School of Education. Scratch is the ideal platform to introduce coding to kids, as it provides students a developmentally-appropriate environment in which they can create animations, interactive stories and games. Students are limited only by their own creativity and willingness to “dive deep”.

Wednesdays 1:15pm – 2:45pm 10/26 – 11/16 Woodburn Elementary

Grades: 3-5 Fee: $70 Instructor: Chad Stewart Course #1109-16
