SFMS Science Olympiad

What is Science Olympiad?

Science Olympiad competitions are like academic track meets where schools come together to compete in 23 science and engineering events all in one day!  Students select events that interest them and meet with coaches after school for training several times a week.

Throughout the training season, students not only enhance their science and engineering skills, but also get a chance to develop team-building through hands-on, group collaboration. The events range from  engineering devices such as hand gliders, rockets, or hovercrafts, taking a written test, answering questions verbally, or participating in knowledge or skill based games.  One of the most awesome things about being on the team is that you can learn any of the subjects you are most interested in from insects to chemistry to environmental science!   Science Olympiad is a great extra-curricular after school activity, because not only is it fun, it builds confidence and science and engineering skills that are valuable in all walks of life!  We hope that you’ll join this year’s team.  Please refer to the 2017 information flier or the 2017 event descriptions to get more information about this exciting academic extra-curricular program! 

Snack Sign-Up: Click Here

Parents and students brining snacks for training can add to the snack sign-up sheet linked above.  We don't usually need anything fancy, just a little something to keep us going after school.  On the days that we train late or on Saturdays, we may need an extra boost.  Thank you parents and students!

Weekly Training Schedule: Click Here

As discussed with students and parents, here is the new training schedule that distributes training across 4 days a week.  If students cannot make it on scheduled dates, it is expected that they will make up the days wherever possible or show work done at home.  Trainings are from 3pm-4:30pm unless otherwise noted.
 
Please keep in mind that Saturdays will be added as needed for build events and bottle rocket launches.
