Imagine an astronomer without a telescope or a paleontologist without a chisel. They would be incapacitated. Similarly, when you have aspiring young scientists without the tools to carry out their objectives, they are left to the sidelines. Inherent in any effective school science program is adequate funding. The prize money offered through this incredible contest would significantly impact the over 2,000 students attending this public middle school.
Falcon Cove already has in place other vital components of a successful science program: 1) dedicated and qualified instructors; 2) a variety of classes including electives in robotics and STEM competitions; and 3) ambitious students who dream about possible careers ranging from artificial intelligence to neurosurgery. Even with all these strengths, however, these students are often not able to realize their objectives as a sports underdog is capable of doing. The fact of the matter is, students cannot build a robot without parts, nor can they conduct experiments or engineer mechanisms without supplies. Funding to help support Falcon Cove’s science program would be an incredible stimulus resulting in profound outcomes.
Thank you for your consideration of this nomination.
The Grand Prize winner!
