OneTroy Element Bee
7th grade scientists competed this week in the classroom level Element Bee, showing off their knowledge of the Periodic Table of Elements. Eight semi-finalists will move on to the district level.
Students from Smith, Baker, Boulan, and Larson will be competing against each other. The event will start with our guest speaker, Dr. Emil Lozanov, from Wayne State University. Following Dr. Lozanov’s presentation we will begin our competition.
Round 1 Name that Element: Students are asked to identify the element when shown the chemical symbol. This is exactly what we did in class for today's Bee.
Round 2 Find the Element: “Find the Element” asks students to click on the location of 5 randomly generated elements in the table. This is a speed game, so fastest time wins!
Students are encouraged to come support their friends and classmates, and to hear Dr. Lozanov's presentation. Please do not drop off students without adult supervision!
ONETROY Element Bee is on Tuesday, December 12th, 4:00pm – 6:00pm (approximate end time) in the Services Building (4420 Livernois, Troy, MI 49098).
