Q: Will the students have access to a digital balance during the event? If so, will it be at their station or will there be a shared one in the room?
I have an interesting question – we have a volunteer UM undergraduate student who volunteered herself to coach for two schools (not understanding that there were two different school groups that had contacted her fraternity). Both schools now have her committed to coaching Potions 4th & 5th grades, at the same time. She doesn’t want to let either down and suggested that she coach all the students together. Assuming both head coaches were in agreement, would there be anything wrong with that?
There would be nothing wrong with them learning and practicing together.
Q: I’d signed up for the potions coach position. I wasnt able to make the meeting on Thursday as I was traveling for work (my wife did and did her best to fill me in). I’ve read the ppt and the event description, which all seem clear; however I was wondering if there was any sort of coaching guide/schedule as to how to prepare the kids – It’s been a long time since I did chemistry and a basic schedule or guides would go a long way towards helping me prepare the children.
A: Thank you so much for coaching! There is not currently a coaching guide or schedule for Potions but I would recommend that you use the PPT slides and the Concept Covered listed in the detailed event description as a good place to get started. You may also want to contact your school’s head coach who could put you in contact with last year’s Potions coach for good suggestions of outlines.
