Science Olympiad Team 2017-2018
The Science Olympiad tournament is a rigorous academic interscholastic competition that consists of a series of different hands-on, interactive, challenging and inquiry-based events that are well balanced between the various disciplines of biology, earth science, environmental science, chemistry, physics, engineering, and technology. The tournament consists of 16 events that the team will prepare for throughout the school year. The Science Olympiad tournament will be held on Saturday, May 5, 2018 at West Wilkes Middle School. Each member of the team will choose up to three events that they will become experts in and compete on tournament day. Being a member of the Science Olympiad team requires dedication, hard work, and after-school meetings. The team is limited to 18 members.
Students will receive parent letters by December 2017. When letters are sent out, we invite students in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade to fill out the interest letter and return it to their teacher. If we have an excessive amount of students sign up to become part of the Science Olympiad team, we will review teacher recommendations, past grades, and attendance history. If your child is chosen to be part of a team, you will be notified of dates and times for after school meetings.
