Science & Math Elementary Exploration for Grades K-6
November 8, 2014
The Science and Math Elementary Exploration (SMEE) is the new name for the Elementary Science Olympiad. On-site registration will be held in the Arts and Sciences Building, 1st floor, Room 108. SMEE will take place in the Arts and Sciences Building on LCC's downtown campus on Saturday, November 8, 2014 from 8:30am to noon.
SMEE is open to all elementary age children in the tri-county area: Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham.
SMEE is a day for the children of LCC's community to come to the campus and experience hands-on science and math activities. All events are non-competitive with an emphasis on learning. We offer activities ranging from eye dissection to making and learning about spirals. Faculty and students (elementary education majors) will be running the day's events. View the SMEE Tentative Event List!
SMEE is very rewarding, fun and exciting for students, parents, and teachers. Students can choose from many activities, focusing on math and all science disciplines. Parents are welcome as chaperones to help their children fully explore the science and math ideas presented. Teachers have used this event as a means of involving parents in their children's education. Many teachers use some of the events as classroom activities to support their science curriculum or as individual science projects. Everyone who attends SMEE goes home with new found information and hopefully a love of science and math.
Students decide which events they would like to do. Most of our participants find it difficult to attend all events, since there are so many to choose from. We offer chemistry and biology demonstrations along with exciting planetarium programs. So, as you see there are many things to be learned.
