Euchee Creek Elementary


Science Education Enrichment Day (S.E.E.D.) is a family-themed festival celebrating science, technology, engineering and math.

Imagine getting up close with honeybees, talking turkey, launching a rocket, making an edible earth, driving a championship robot, making paper, or virtually traveling through outer space.

As part of the free event, attendees will celebrate innovations in STEM, or science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. S.E.E.D goers will roam the university's campus, visiting the Ruth Patrick Science Education Center and other sites at USC Aiken. Student groups, regional corporations, museums, professional organizations, government agencies, educators, and national labs join forces to present engaging hands-on activities for guests of all ages.

With the goal of increasing awareness of the role of science, technology engineering and mathematics in society and conveying the joy of STEM, S.E.E.D is hosted each year to give young learners 'up close and personal' interaction with real-world scientists, engineers and other technical professionals.

Highlights of S.E.E.D. include:

The event at USC Aiken is presented by the Ruth Patrick Science Education Center, working closely with the Aiken County Public School District.



Supply List

Under normal circumstances, I would not ask you to send in supplies specifically for Horizons, as I generally provide everything that they will need. However, in order to be as safe as possible we will be unable to share supplies this year. For that reason, I am asking that students have a small number of supplies that they will keep in their desks at all times.  Each student has their own desk and by keeping the materials in one location we will never have to worry about them being lost.  In light of the fact that this is short notice, I understand that it will take longer to gather the supplies.  I would like for the students to have their materials by Friday, August 12th.  If for any reason you are unable to get the necessary supplies please let me know and I will ensure that your child has everything they will need.  


Our Goals

Horizons is a resource program offered through the Columbia County School district with a focus on enriching our gifted learners.  The goal of the Euchee Creek Horizons Program is to expose our students to as many unique educational opportunities as possible.  We understand that each student is different and may enjoy some opportunities more that others.  By increasing the variety of programs offered, we hope to help each student find something new to engage them.  We also focus on project based learning which is a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an authentic, engaging and complex question, problem, or challenge.
