Science Olympiad Over Break

Last weeks meeting went pretty well. We have just a little under a month until our first competition so it’s time to really start getting busy.

Attached to the bottom of this post are the students event assignments. The events that are color coded in yellow indicate that multiple students are competing for a two person event. I’ll discuss this more in another post later in the week.

For ALL events you need to know the rules backwards and forwards. You should read their rules multiple times over the break. The rules were sent out in an e-mail around a month ago. You should print out the rules for the events you are in and bring them to all their meetings. Last year we were disqualified in an event because we didn’t follow the rules. KNOW your rules!

ALL students also need to have a Science Olympiad binder. The binder should be 1-2″ and have at least two pockets. This will be useful to the students in organizing their materials.

For the knowledge events. The students should start to gather material and resources to study from. This would include going to the library and seeking information about their events as well as finding websites about their events. The students that attended last week’s mandatory meeting received a DVD-ROM with all kinds of information regarding on each event. They should explore this as much as possible. Another very helpful website is: The Wright Center. I would also encourage the students to work together whenever possible.

For the building events THE STUDENTS ARE NOT TO BUILD ANYTHING DURING BREAK. They should focus their time on planning. This would include looking at previous designs, determining what materials the team needs to purchase, and drawing the device (in detail) that they are going to build. You will not be allowed to build anything until you have a detailed plan including a drawing of the item being build a list of materials that the item is made of. Last year we did not compete at the Magsig competition in any building events because we were not adequately prepared. Let’s try not to repeat that again this year.

Anytime the students are working on Science Olympiad outside of our weekly meetings they should complete the independent study form attached at the bottom of this post. You should probably print out a few blank forms after reading this post and keep it as part of your Science Olympiad binder. The completed forms should also be kept in an organized fashion in the binders.

Lastly, have a great break and have fun. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to e-mail me.

Event Preferences

It’s time to start selecting which events each student would like to participate in.

In the excel spreadsheet which you can get by following this link, please fill out your top ten events with number 1 being your favorite event. Do not rank more than 3 building events. There is an example at the top (in green), if you have completed your line correctly the last column of the spreadsheet will say “TRUE”. When you are finished save the document using “SAVE AS” and insert your name somewhere after the original filename (e.g. 2009 Student Event Preference – John Doe.xls). Review the saved document to ensure everything is correct and then e-mail it to

An alternate version PDF is provided for those without excel or e-mail access. Please turn this in to Mrs. Rodecker in room 208 as soon as possible.

Callout Successful

I hope everyone had a great time at the callout. We had a pretty good turnout overall and I know there are more students interested in joining. If you didn’t get one of the handouts or wanted to give the materials to a friend, I have attached all the materials handed out at the callout. Science Olympiad is always more fun to do if you have friends involved so I always strongly encourage people to get their friends involved.

Getting Started for the Year

It’s great to get started for another fun and exciting year of Science Olympiad at Lakota Ridge.  I have a few things to announce for this year.

First, we have a new coach, Mrs. Rodecker, a teacher that is new to Lakota Ridge.  She is very excited about coaching our team and looks forward to working with an awesome group of students.  Please join me in welcoming her to our team.

Secondly, we have planned our callout for this year.  Below is a link that has all the details regarding the callout.  Please check back periodically just in case something changes.
