What is Science Olympiad?
Science Olympiad is an after school academic team. Students prepare for and compete in series of ~23 team events pertaining to multiple scientific disciplines and engineering and design. An emphasis is placed on active, hands-on group participation.
Over 7,300 middle school and high school teams from 50 U.S. states compete each year.
Students begin at the regional level tournament, having the opportunity to place in the state competition, which is typically in April.
How can I participate?
See Ms. Arvo ASAP to sign-up or for more information to join for 2019-2020!
What happens next?
Sign up on the interest list in Ms. Arvo's room and you will be added to our Microsoft Teams page for the most current updates and news.
Students, keep an ear out for school announcements in the morning, the Knightly News and afternoon announcements for updates.
Parents, please listen to administration phone calls/updates on the weekend, as we get closer to practices kicking off.
When are practices?
Practices will begin Tuesday October 1st after school until 5pm.
Athletic participation/practice/games will NOT prevent you from being on our team. You can participate in both!
We are also fortunate to have Ms. Allen, an 8th Grade Science teacher, coming aboard to coach this year.
