Volunteering @ CPS Invite

We had a great time volunteering at the CPS Invitational today at Westinghouse College Prep! It was nice to meet all of the coaches as well. We ran Astronomy C, Chem Lab C, Ecology C, Wright Stuff B, and Write It Do It B.

RSO Status Granted!

We received notice today that our application to become an RSO (Recognized Student Organization) at the University of Chicago has been approved! This exclusive class of student organization allows us access to substantially more university resources than before. Thank you UChicago for your support!

First “Build It” Workshop Announced!

We are happy to announce that registration is now open for UChicago Science Olympiad’s first “Build It” workshop, to be held Saturday, March 4th from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM at the University of Chicago campus.
The registration form is accessible here: https://goo.gl/forms/P16oyzjE2fTAbEQk1
We will be offering workshops for 4 events: Game On, Helicopters, Towers, and Wind Power. We will be providing materials for Helicopters, Towers, and Wind Power so that students can learn how to build their own device. Students can choose to take their device home or test it on our rigs. We are limited to 10 builds per event, but more than one student can work on each build. Participants in Game On will need to bring their own laptops and chargers.
Registration is free and lunch will be provided. This workshop has been generously sponsored by the Materials Research Science and Engineering Center at UChicago.
Registration will close on Friday, February 10th. 
More details about the workshop schedule and logistics will follow.
