Re: Troy (CA) Looking for an Invitational to Attend

I might add that if you are interested in attending a University invite, you may need to register sooner than a couple of weeks - these can fill up extremely quickly, as I'm sure you know from MIT. Unless they are willing to open up a slot for you. I would pitch the UMSO invite, but our date is also...

Re: University of Michigan Invitational 2019

Registration for the invitational will open on September 17, 2018 at 6:00PM ET. The registration fee has not been finalized yet but will tentatively be around $80 (and will not in any case be more than $80). If your coach did not receive an email from us tonight but you are interested in attending o...

Calculus is strongly discouraged in SciOly and I too would never require it for a test. Though, underlying knowledge is certainly always helpful.

Re: Events 2018-2019

All true, but I imagine having a different schedule than almost every regional and the state tournament and most invitationals is going to quickly send people running. Yep. Michigan States always mimics the national schedule conflicts. Some regionals do, some don't, but invitationals almost always ...

Re: Events 2018-2019

Yes. Since my invite doesn't run 60 teams, but only 36, I can complete each event in 3 time blocks. It's convenient to run 3 overlapping event groupings in the morning and 3 in the afternoon. If the 4 longest grading events are scheduled into 3 time blocks, for example Forensics and ED at the same ...

Once again, this will be a Division C Invitational, though we hope to add division B in the future. Last year’s tournament...

Re: Nationals Event Discussion

My understanding is that the new Science Olympiad Alumni Task Force is designed to better retain and integrate alumni, especially at state and regional tournaments. Participation/volunteering at these tournaments, and the relationships formed as a result, often serve as a stepping stone to becoming...

Re: Nationals Event Discussion

I do wish that all tournaments, not just nationals, involved younger student alumni (eg college students) more frequently. I feel that students can sometimes write some of the best tests because they are the ones who have actually competed the events dozens of times and know what works and what doe...
