RHMS Science Olympiad
Science Olympiad is a competitive science team with events involving studying, performing (labs) or building objects. Science Olympiad competitions are like academic track meets, consisting of a series of 23 team events in each division. Division B is middle school. Each year, a portion of the events are rotated to reflect the ever-changing nature of genetics, earth science, chemistry, anatomy, physics, geology, mechanical engineering and technology. At regional competition approximately 10-12 other local middle schools will meet and compete. The top 4 teams move on to the State competition. Students on the team will spend about 8-10 hours a week on their events from October to January, and 12- 15 hours a week in February and March (depending on the students' number of events). By combining events from all disciplines, Science Olympiad encourages a wide cross-section of students to get involved. Emphasis is placed on active, hands-on group participation. Students are expected to collaborate with other team members as well as work independently when needed and come to meetings prepared with questions/or other items needing help from the coaches. Coaches do not simply teach - we provide information and students are expected to go and find further resources as needed. This is a club for students who are self motivated. Each competitive team needs to consist of 15 students.
