Evan Thiele at Esperero Canyon Middle School requested supplies for the 30 students on the school's Science Olympiad Team. Their involvement in the Science Olympiad fosters hands on experiencial learning as an extension on the science education they get in the classroom. The Rincon Rotary believes strongly in this kind of education and obtained the supplies for them.
