Science Olympiad consists of a team of students who enjoy scientific problem solving.  Activities range from hands-on labs to building projects ahead of time (cars, bottle rockets, catapults, Rube-Goldberg machine, etc.), to testing your knowledge in a specific subject, like anatomy, geology,  astronomy or scientific process.  We prepare together in weekly meetings (some extra time is required at home to be successful) and compete as a team.  We have gone all the way to the State competition in Augusta.  This year... who knows?  All you need is enthusiasm, self-motivation and a love of science. The success of the Simpson Team in competition with other schools would be enhanced with participation of parent volunteers at our weekly practices. Parent volunteers are still needed.

Members: Open to all students
Meets:  Monday
Time: 4:30-5:30 p.m.
