Announcements

  • Team Meetings for 2017-2018 will be on Thursdays in Mrs. Rhoades classrom.  Please check out the calendar page.  

Welcome!

  • The Science Olympiad gives students the opportunity to put their knowledge of science to the test by participating in two types of events: Build and Study. In the Build events, students build a working model that must meet specific requirements. They test their models, rethink them, and modify them as they learn to make them better. Some build events also require students to take a test demonstrating an understanding of underlying science concepts. In the Study events, students research topics and become knowledgeable enough to answer questions about the topics. For some Study events students are allowed to have notes with them when answering questions.

    Weekly meetings are primarily for students to show the team what they have been working on during the past week, check in with the coaches , share ideas or possible solutions to problems, do trial runs, take part in practice events, and get assignments for the following week. Most building and research takes place at home. We do have limited supplies for students to use.

    Throughout the year, students participate in Invitationals where they compete with other schools in 23 events. (See Events List page.) These are practice events leading up to our regional tournament, state tournament and possibly nationals. At all events, team members meet other students from across the state to learn from each other, while refining their models and knowledge of the topics covered in their events. Students can place in individual events, but the team qualifies for state and national tournaments as a team with an overall score being earned from all events combined.
