Singapore math/Earlybird Start-up Science

Earlybird Start-Up Science is a series of four books specially designed for 7-8 year-olds. This series opens the door to the challenging world of scientific discovery and aims at introducing young learners to scientific concepts. Simple explanations of concepts are charmingly illustrated and reinforced in the interesting activities and experiments that follow.

Four books, each with 29 exercises, are filled with stimulating facts and interesting activities. From topics relating to their everyday lives, like how to care for pets, to distant and exciting things, like satellites and dinosaurs.

Above extract from Preface of Earlybird Start-Up Science (reproduced with the permission of the publishers).

There are no teacher’s guides for this series. Answers are provided at the end of each book.

SUPERCHARGEDSCIENCE

Are you a homeschool parent? You’re a stay-at-home parent, working professional, or somewhere in between, who places a high value on education for your children. You want to make a difference in your child’s life but struggle with teaching science and don’t want to sell your child short. If you can relate, you’re in the right place. The science curriculum you’ll find here is self-guiding, so your kids can do it on their own. Also, it’s very hands-on, so you’re kids won’t be reading boring lessons from a book – they’ll be doing real science, like real scientists do in the lab. I promise they will learn more science AND enjoy it more in 2 months that they will from a typical year of “traditional” science education.
Are you a parent whose kids go to school, but you want a better science education for them? If so, you’re in the right place. The programs and free resources you’ll find on this site are great if you’ve got a young Einstein who just can’t get enough science. You’ll find hundreds of science experiments, step-by-step videos and even a place to ask questions for our team of real scientists to answer. Don’t let your kids’ fascination with science get lost or stifled – I promise, they’ll get going in a direction that totally excites them, and where they are learning what they need to (not just for today, but also what they need to get into a great college).
Are you a teacher who is teaching science, but it’s not your strongest subject? No problem, I’ve got you covered. I’ll give you complete lesson plans, worksheets and step-by-step videos showing you (or your students) how to do each activity.

Competitions.

MIT THINK Scholars (Cambridge, MA)

THINK is an annual science research and innovation competition for high school students. Rather than requiring students to have completed a research project before applying, THINK instead caters to students who have done extensive research on the background of a potential research project and are looking for additional guidance in the early stages of their project. The program is organized by a group of undergraduates at MIT.

National Science Bowl

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) National Science Bowl® is a nationwide academic competition that tests students’ knowledge in all areas of science and mathematics. Middle and high school student teams from diverse backgrounds are comprised of four students, one alternate, and a teacher who serves as an advisor and coach. These teams face-off in a fast-paced question-and-answer format, being tested on a range of science disciplines including biology, chemistry, Earth science, physics, energy, and math.

Regeneron Science Talent Search

The Regeneron Science Talent Search is the nation’s oldest and most prestigious science and math competition for high school seniors. Science Talent Search alumni have made extraordinary contributions to science and hold more than 100 of the world’s most coveted science and math honors, including the Nobel Prize and the National Medal of Science. Each year approximately 1,800 students enter Regeneron STS, submitting original research in critically important scientific fields of study in competition for more than $3.1 million in awards.

National Academic League
The National Academic League® motivates and recognizes academic athletes much like their athletic peers. By successfully combining the important aspects of team sports — such as competitiveness, strategy, teamwork and cooperation in a group effort — with important aspects of learning — such as problem-solving critical thinking and scholarship — the NAL® generates the same popular enthusiasm and pride as do sports teams. It’s cool to be smart!

Making role models of young scholars has a tremendous peer-group effect that is positive throughout the schools. NAL® students gain essential skills and experiences that they carry with them all through their lives. NAL games promote educational soundness. Students learn how to learn and by extension how to work and become successful, productive adults. All levels of students can compete. Participating students are honored for their scholarly endeavors with trophies, medals, and recognition as well as peer and community attention. By each season’s end, each league has determined a champion school that participates in the National Tournament conducted through video conferencing NAL-

Toshiba/NSTA ExploraVision

The ExploraVision competition for K-12 students engages the next generation in real-world problem solving with a strong emphasis on STEM. ExploraVision challenges students envision and communicate new technology 20 years in the future through collaborative brainstorming and research of current science and technology.
ExploraVision is a science competition that goes beyond the typical student science competition and into what it takes to bring ideas to reality. A teacher will sponsor and lead his/her students as they work in groups of 2 – 4 to simulate real research and development. A teacher will guide his or her students as they pick a current technology, research it, envision what it might look like in 20 years, and describe the development steps, pros & cons, and obstacles

U.S. Stockholm Junior Water Prize
