Science Olympiad - 2013
- A one-day science contest for schools from surrounding counties.
- 8 middle school teams (division B)
- 10 high school teams (division C)
- All the physics-related events involve apparatus that teams of 2-4 students build ahead of time (and usually impound when they arrive at Goshen College).
The physics department sponsors 9 events. Many volunteer judges are needed! Here's a google spreadsheet to sign up to judge an event.
- Commitment is 1-3 hours for one event on the day of the regional, and typically 1-2 hours of preparation.
- Each team of judges meets once with Paul Meyer Reimer or John Buschert to check on scoring and make sure you have all your needed equipment.
- Below are links to rules, and the national Science Olympiad web page for each event (which generally includes a scoring spreadsheet).
- You get a t-shirt, a catered lunch with the other volunteers, gratitude from enthusiastic students and their coaches, and an all around fun time!
