Science Olympiad

Dear Science Olympians and Parents!  

January is flying by and we are rapidly approaching our San Diego Science Olympiad Regional Division B competition date of February 9th, 2019!  I hope all Olympians are making the most of their training sessions as we enter the home stretch! 

I wanted to send a quick reminder about our pre-olympiad launch meeting on Wednesday, January 30th at 6 pm in room 203.  We will discuss important details about competition day at this meeting, and we hope to see you there.  I will post notes for the meeting for those who cannot attend, but there is no substitute for attending this meeting, especially if this is your first year in Science- O.  If you have a training session during that time, please attend your training and send a representative or see the notes that are sent out after the meeting.  

Lastly, volunteers are especially important on competition day.  Each team is required to provide one volunteer per team enrolled to help make the event possible.  Volunteer information can be found in the email below.  We are looking for 4 volunteers to help as required on competition day.  If you can help in this capacity, please let me know and I will coordinate your sign up, and thank you for your consideration.  

There are other ways to help the team on competition day as well, please see this list of volunteer needs and fill in what you can provide for our Olympians.  You have editing rights to this one, so go ahead and enter your contribution directly into the sheet, or feel free to contact me and I can fill it in for you.   

Thank you all for your involvement in this amazing program.  Give all your remaining trainings your best, thank a coach, and we look forward to seeing you on the 30th at 6 pm in room 203 to discuss the details of competition day!

What is the Science Olympiad?

Science Olympiad is a team sport for STEM enthusiasts, requiring preparation, commitment, coaching and practice throughout the year. Students work in teams to cross-train for a variety of events to compete with other students at the San Diego Regional Science Olympiad Competition!

Emphasis is placed on active, hands-on, group participation. Depending on the event signed up for, students can build a device, take a written test, answer questions verbally, or sometimes a combination of both.   The great thing about it is that you can learn any of the subjects you are most interested in during the training.   Science Olympiad is a great extra-curricular activity.  We hope that you’ll join this year’s team.  Check out the 2019 information flier or the event descriptions to get more information about this exciting extra curricular activity!
