SASCS Science Olympiad Team Trains For Upcoming Competitions
Like mental pentathletes, the SASCS SCIENCE OLYMPIAD TEAM has started to train for a multiplicity of Science Olympiad events . The Junkyard Challenge – wherein students use “scraps” to master engineering problems -- is only one of the 23 events. For the Junkyard Event, teams must construct a device on-site to solve an engineering challenge. On Saturday, November 20th, the SAS’ Olympiad team completed a trial run for this event constructing an expanse using only Styrofoam plates and rubber bands. The result is shown in following pictures.
On March 17, 2007, the students of the SASCS Science Olympiad Team were acknowledged as the “#6 Best Team” out of 27 area school districts competing in the Division B Science Olympiad held at Onondaga Community College.

Science Olympiad is a primarily middle school, or high school team competition that requires knowledge of various science topics and engineering ability. Over 14,000 teams from 48 U.S. states and Canada compete each year.
Students who have shown interest and ability in science will be selected with a written test. The school team consists of 15 students. These students are expected to attend all sessions. Sessions will be held at after schools and on Saturdays.
There will be an individual schedule given to the selected students for the study sessions. There will be pizza parties and field trips upon the team performance. Visit www.soinc.org for more information about the Science Olympiads.
