Orlando Science Student Siyona Mishra finished the nineth place in the 2015 Scripps National Spelling Bee in Maryland!
by Orlando Science - Friday, 29 May 2015, 10:44 AM
 

Our 6th grade student, Siyona Mishra, an 11-year-old,who finished tied for ninth place Thursday in the 2015 Scripps National Spelling Bee in Maryland.

During the Finals, Siyona was given the word "haček," a word for the diacritical mark placed over a letter — as in the č in the word, itself — according to Merriam-Webster.

The Czech word haček, pronounced "ha-check," literally means "little hook."

Siyona incorrectly spelled it h-a-c-h-e-k, eliminating her from the spelling bee.

Still, the sixth-grader finished in the tournament's top 10, making it to the seventh round.

Other words Siyona did spell correctly before being eliminated include:

  • emmetropia — normal eye vision, as opposed to myopia (nearsightedness) and hyperopia (farsightedness)
  • procrypsis — camouflage, protective coloration in animals, such as chameleons
  • chiliad — a group of 1,000
  • megalopolis — a chain of multiple metropolitan areas

2015 International Night!
by Orlando Science - Thursday, 21 May 2015, 09:45 AM
 

Dear Orlando Science Families and Friends,
Orlando Science is proud to continue having International Night on Friday, May 29th from 5 - 6:30pm. We invite everyone to come and explore a variety of cultures. Each participating teacher's room has been transformed into an embassy and parents and students are invited to walk freely through the school to experience the vast culture that each of our 20 countries have to offer.

Students have been working hard to help teachers with decorations. There will be a “passport” booklet to hand out to students, the idea is that they will travel to all of the countries, learn something about each one and get their booklet stamped (or signed) by the representative of that country.

Also, the visitors will vote on their favorite country of the evening, the teacher with the most votes for best room will win a prize!

Volunteers to help design and provide cultural items, foods, music or clothing are welcomed to help us represent these cultures to the fullest. A full list of countries and teachers is included, you may email the teacher directly or you may contact Ms. Branly for more information at Branly@orlandoscience.org.  We look forward to seeing you there!
