Science Olympiad, Science Bowl, Zero Robotics, First Tech Challenge, Science Fair, etc. We are kind of competitive. Maybe too competitive.
If someone is doing science somewhere, we'll probably want to go check it out. CERN, NASA, FermiLab, Smithsonian, etc.
Projects are kind of our thing. We build robots, make explosions, and send cameras into space. Check our our project-related blog posts.
Green Bacon: Trying to include the school in grassroots efforts to improve the carbon footprint.
Zero Robotics: Adjusting code!
FTC: Building a robot (as usual) Competing again soon! The robot has omnidirectional driving, and it must be able to shoot a ball and autonomously press a button.
Science Olympiad: MEGAN: “Science Olympiad is great because it is incorporate various topics and students get to pursue whatever they’re interested in. It involves both testing and engineering.”
MEDIA/LOGISTICS: You know what Caroline’s getting your family for Christmas bacon fan T-shirts! If you want one, email firstname.lastname@example.org! 🙂
Welcome to all BACON members for our 2016-2017 year! So far, all groups are hard at work on their various projects and competitions.
CHS Bacon had the opportunity to visit North Anna nuclear power plant. We heard from engineers on site and learned about the process of harnessing nuclear and other types of energy.
Hi everyone, the submissions for our annual t-shirt contest are in!
Google sign in is required.
BACON’s first meeting occurred today! We had the club leaders explain the various groups within BACON, had a registration session, and even set off a rocket! If you missed today’s meeting, you can still register by clicking this link. Thank you to all who came for this meeting. This is going to be a great year for BACON!
As many of you know, it costs a lot of money to run BACON. In early April we are planning on sending 28 students on the CERN trip in europe to see the LHC! Unfortunately, the majority of the students come form low-income families and cannot afford the trip.
If you would like to donate and help us send these kids (who love science and want to learn more about it) to CERN click on the GoFundMe link below and donate!
Thank you so much for your support!
mission possible This is an example of one of the projects that will take place at science olympiad, February 28 in Charlottesville High School. Check out this preview of a Mission Possible project by two of our bacon members, Megan Bird, and Graham Keeley. Click on the words “mission possible” at the beginning of the paragraph to view their project!
Today, a field trip to the engineering labs at UVA was announced! It will take place from 1st-5th periods next Friday. If you are at all interested, please talk to Maddie Bright or Dr. Shields for a field trip form. There are only 12 spots left!
Two people from UVA came to talk to us about doing a project in the CHS schoolyard garden about monitoring the conditions using arduino. If you are interested, please talk to Eliza Cohn or Ben Hitchcock for more info!
