Collaboration ignites passion for science

Mentoring for Success: Whitewater High Supports Sara Harp Minter Elementary Science Olympiad Team”.

For the past three years, the Sara Harp Minter Elementary Science Olympiad team has been receiving invaluable support from mentors at Whitewater High. Every Friday morning, members of the Whitewater High Science National Honor Society visit the Mountain Lions to inspire and deepen their understanding of science concepts for upcoming competitions.

The mentors bring hands-on activities and games to help students sharpen their knowledge and prepare for the county competition. This collaboration between Minter enrichment teacher Stacy McClanahan, 1st grade teacher Kristi Soong, and Whitewater High science teachers Kathryn Dupree and Shelley Kozlowski has helped foster a love for science among students at Minter.

In addition to supporting the Minter students during competitions, the mentors from Whitewater High also share their passion for science with the community through the Whitewater STEAM bus. Their dedication to promoting science education has inspired past students to continue participating in Science Olympiad as they move on to middle school.

McClanahan expressed gratitude for the Whitewater students who are willing to develop relationships with and mentor the Mountain Lions. She stated that their collective goal is to inspire a love for all things science and build strong relationships within the Whitewater community. The support and mentorship provided by high school students have been instrumental in helping Minter students succeed in their science endeavors.
