Science Olympiad Competition
Five years ago as part of an IB project former Troy HS Science Olympiad Captain and two-time national champion Nicholas Bowman started a Science Olympiad competition at Fisler to give 4th-6th graders an opportunity to try out Science Olympiad. Now in it's 6th year his dad and brother Alex have continued the competition and look forward to this year’s competition on Saturday March 16th. We hope you can join us for a fun day of science related competitions. The added bonus is that we will be selecting top students from this competition to represent Fisler at the Orange County competition on May 4th at Jeffrey Trail Middle School.
The goal of the day is to provide Fisler students, who are interested in science and who like to compete, a chance to experience a small taste of what science olympiad is all about and have some fun competing with your friends. My hope is that you will enjoy it as much as I have and want to join the Middle school and eventually your High School Science Olympiad teams. One of the best parts of science olympiad is meeting new friends who share a love for Science.
For the past 35 years SCIENCE OLYMPIAD has led a revolution in science education. What began as a grassroots assembly of science teachers is now one of the premiere science competitions in the nation, providing rigorous, standards-based challenges to nearly 7,000 teams in 50 states. Science Olympiad's ever-changing line-up of events in all STEM disciplines exposes students to practicing scientists and career choices, and energizes classroom teachers with a dynamic content experience.
This event will challenge the students knowledge of direct currrent(DC) circuits using low voltage batteries.
Students will identify bones and pictures of bones at stations throughout the room and answer questions about the bones. Only the Scientiofic names of the Bones will be accepted as correct
The objective is to test the ability of the students to classify materials into one of three categories
This event is designed to test the student's ability to think on their feet. They will be given a bag of materials to build a freestanding tower as high as they can.
