Purpose: Science Olympiad is a state
competition covering a wide range of science topics, including
engineering events, experimental design and data analysis, problem
solving, and science content knowledge. Each team member competes in
three of the 23 events at the state competition in the spring.
Meeting times: After school in the Science Department. Exact meeting
time varies by event, but is typically one hour per week for each event.
State competition is in late March or early April. The winning state
team moves on to a national competition later in the spring.
Other information: Science Olympiad is a great way to explore topics of
science beyond what is covered in the classroom. Past events have
included robotics, bottle rockets, solar and wind energy, health and
physiology, and forensics. More information can be found at http://soinc.org.
