Science Updates: November 2015

2015-16 Science Challenge Results

We had over 300 students from all ten Clermont County High Schools as well as Grant Career Center participate in the event held at Solid Rock Church’s South Campus.  A huge note of appreciation goes to the church,  teachers, volunteers, and ESC staff (past and present) that made this event possible!

Congratulations to our top 3 teams from these schools!

1st Place: Milford
2nd Place: New Richmond
3rd Place: Batavia

These schools are headed to the Science Olympiad held in March at UC Blue Ash.  CCESC will sponsor their registration to this event.  We wish all our teams the best of luck!

Science Online from INFOhio—Virtual Experiments, eLearning Modules

Science teachers have valued Science Online, available to all schools at no charge through INFOhio, for the colorful diagrams that illustrate complicated science and math concepts. Now, in addition to a new streamlined interface, Science Online includes interactive virtual experiments. These come with complete material lists and instructions. Students can complete these in the lab and replicate them virtually. In addition to interactive experiments, teachers and students will find:

  • eLearning Modules that include lesson plans;
  • Videos that can be streamed or embedded in classroom Web pages or learning management systems;
  • Topic Centers (research starters) that include background articles, videos, diagrams, experiments, and timelines;
  • Folders to save articles and searches;
  • Read-aloud and translation features; and
  • Live chat help.
