Science Olympiad

 TWIN PEAKS MIDDLE SCHOOL SCIEnce Olympiad

In the Twin Peaks Middle School Science Olympiad student club, we learn about science and have fun at the same time. The program allows students to engage in science in a unique manner that increases their curiosity. Our students participate in exciting, challenging and fun events while they learn scientific problem-solving in a team environment. In late August, participants choose events in which to compete and then prepare for them over the next six months. Preparation involves attending mandatory one to two hours per event weekly sessions with their team and coach or coaches. Sessions may be held before or after school, in the evenings, or even on weekends, depending on the schedules of the coaches and students. Our club is organized and run by parent volunteers.

As part of a two-person team, students can
… learn about the planets and moons in our Solar System.
… design and build a glider that will fly longer than your competitors.
… build a marble roller coaster.

Finally, we compete at the San Diego Regional Science Olympiad event, which is February 9, 2019.
