Each year, our school has a team who trains to represent us at the Northeast Georgia Science Olympiad competition. This year’s regional competition will take place on March 26, 2022. Science Olympiad is an event where students compete as a school team against other schools in categories like bridge-building, investigating a crime scene, building a drop-safe egg container, rocket-launching, rock identification, exploring animal skeletons, map reading, and many more! Some events require students to build and test a solution to a problem, and some events involve students taking tests to see how much they know about a topic. There are 18 timed events (each lasting about 45 minutes), and students compete in those events with a partner. At the actual competition, students will compete in anywhere from 1 to 4 events, and our team score is determined based on how we perform in individual events.
