Where else can I learn about science, engineering, and technology

This is designed to be more of an interactive post for people to add comments to as they find programs that work. There is no way one person can know all of the opportunities available. This is one area where the knowledge of the crowd is far greater. This should be considered a work in progress which will be added to.

So you’ve finished Science Olympiad for the year… now what? Maybe you’re curious about ways to continue to learn and participate in science, engineering, and technology.

    Last Practice This Wednesday

    We’ll have one final practice this Wednesday. We’ll wrap up some of this year and we’ll discuss some ways to continue an interest in science, technology, and engineering.

    Roster Update

    It appears we missed a scheduling conflict on the roster. Please note a new roster has been released and Jordan Cline will be doing Anatomy.

    The events that are walk-ins (we discussed this at practice) are denoted by WI directly below the event name. Events that require impound are also noted as such (IMP).

    Campus maps

    Some parents have asked about maps of the campus.  Maps can be located here.  The campus is relatively easy to navigate.

    Media Waiver Form

    The regional tournament has requested that the students and parents sign a media waiver form. This helps to publicize Science Olympiad, but is optional for those who do not wish to sign the form. Please bring these forms to home base the day of competition.

    Cincinnati Regional Directions

    As the competition is coming up next week (March 5th) I thought it would be good to share the final information with all parents.

    Please check and print out a copy of the latest roster. Fortunately, we were able to get the timeslots we wanted and thus there are no additional roster changes. The roster (which now includes some additional information at the bottom) is located here.

    All students should be at the home base no later than 7:15 AM. Please be on time or early. Note that we will not be meeting at the school since Raymond Walters is so close. If you cannot provide transportation for your student to the competition please make arrangements with a another teammate.

    The awards ceremony for this competition is mandatory. We typically do fairly well at this competition and we need those who place to be there to accept their medals. Also we will most likely do a team photo prior to the awards ceremony. If you have any questions regarding the competition please don’t hesitate to ask.

    Directions to the competition:
