Science Olympiad

  • Science Olympiad

    Please see the announcement page for our tryout schedule!  Our first tryouts are 11/1/18

     

     

    We will hold tryouts for Density Lab and Meteorology this week on Thursday 11/1 until 3:30.  The tests will be very simple, short, and include basic understanding of the event presented in the rules manual.  For example, the Density Lab test will have definitions, a handful of density problems, and a performance assessment activity. Students are also welcomed to come Thursdays after school until 3:30 to ask questions or study for upcoming tryout tests.  I will have the complete schedule for November available this Wednesday.  My hope is to have students who are dedicated come and show aptitude on tests so that by the beginning of December, we can create our teams with the most competitive students on one team and the students who are more interested in SO for fun on the other team.  Our first whole team meeting will be at the beginning of December.  Once I get back the green permission slips from students and have all the parent email addresses then I will update parents directly with schedules and announcements.

    For 35 years, SCIENCE OLYMPIAD has led a revolution in science education. What began as a grassroots assembly of science teachers is now one of the premier science competitions in the nation, providing rigorous, standards-based challenges to 7,600 teams in 50 states. Science Olympiad's ever-changing line-up of events in all STEM disciplines exposes students to practicing scientists and career choices and energizes classroom teachers with a dynamic content experience. ~ Science Olympiad
