Eagles Home Educators is excited to be planning another year of ScienceOlympiad!
For the 2013-14 school year we will continue to meet in Bethlehem at The Church at Winder. Science Olympiad will meet 2 days per month – the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays from 10am until 4pm. The cost is $85 per family PLUS $15 per student AND you must be a paid member of Eagles Home Educators.
Some things to consider (About our Science Olympiad Teams)
You must be a traditional homeschool family (National rules – not ours) As long as you turn in a Deceleration of Intent all is well!
This is a major commitment !! Plan to follow through. Our season runs from late August – Mid March. Practice is weekly and more often than that when we get close to tournament dates.
This year we will have Middle and High School competitive teams. (We tried an elementary team this year and didn’t have the needed participation)
Parents are required to be involved – helping coach, plan etc.
Students will be divided onto teams based on counties they live in (another national rule!) and their ages.
COLLEGES LOVE to see SciOLy on transcripts! Our Middle school A team went to state this year. This is the 2nd year in a row Eagles has sent a team to state! They came in 4rd at regionals (regional had 24 teams) and 10th at state (24 teams) Our middles school B team also did amazingly well! (first year students) Many of our students medaled and earned ribbons this year! Our High School team BARLEY missed a trip to state! The did an amazing job with many students earning medals and ribbons as well.
Competitions are on Saturdays. We go to at least one invitational, regional and possibly state. Middle school will also go to a training session in Cobb County. Over night travel to regional competition is possible – we have to be able to work dates around our competitive speech/debate and High School SciOly team……
