There are several extracurricular activities that provide opportunities to step up your game at Flat Rock Middle School. Student organizations such as National Junior Honor Society, Builder's Club, Battle of the Books, Destination Imagination, and Science Olympiad enable students to challenge themselves beyond the classroom and provide a forum to develop leadership, teamwork, and problem-solving skills. Talk to the teachers and coaches of these events to find out how you can get involved.
Science Olympiad is a national program that features a wide range of science topics. Students will use inquiry and problem-solving to increase their scientific knowledge and skills as they train to compete in a variety of events. Some of these events include Bottle Rockets, Crimebusters, Anatomy, Meteorology, Towers, Rocks/Minerals, Duct-tape Challenge and Hovercraft. Flat Rock's Science Olympiad team will start up in October. We will be training for the regional competition to be held at UNC-Asheville on March 25th, 2017.
Meetings start 10/25 and will be on Tuesday afternoons until 4:30 in Mr. Campbell's room (A3).
Engineering club will focus on skills in robotics, Science Olympiad engineering events and general problem-solving challenges. We will start up on the Wednesday after Thanksgiving break.
