Access to Facilities Guidelines 

 

There is a check in procedure at each building.  Students and parents sign their students in and out of the sessions.  Later in the season, students can sign themselves in and out, but please be there for the first few trainings to ensure everyone gets where they need to be.  Allow time for parking.  The coach for each event will meet the group at the front desk of the building where the trainings are taking place and escort their team to the training rooms.   

 

Here are general directions to Viasat.  Refer to the upper map to get to the specific building you need to access for each training.    

 
 

What is Science Olympiad?

What is the Science Olympiad?

 

Science Olympiad competitions are like academic track meets consisting of a series of 23 individual and team events. Students select events that interest them and meet with coaches for training once or twice a week.

 

Emphasis is placed on active, hands-on, group participation. Depending on the event signed up for, students can build a device, take a written test, answer questions verbally, or sometimes a combination of both.

 

Science Olympiad is a great extra-curricular activity. Last year, 40 Olympians learned new things, made new friends, learned to work together to accomplish their goal, received ribbons and trophies for their efforts and had a great time doing it!!! We hope that you’ll join this year’s team. 

 

Science Olympiad is a nationally organized competition in biology, chemistry, physics, earth sciences and engineering! Middle School students from around San Diego County.
