MS Science Bowl Petition

Post by knottingpurple » June 9th, 2017, 6:53 pm

One of the things that convinced me to join high school Science Olympiad was being on a Science Bowl team in middle school, but unfortunately, my school district stopped having a Science Bowl team after 2014. I think all of us who have done Science Olympiad understand the value of participating in science competitions, so I would really appreciate your support in trying to bring back Science Bowl for the middle schools in my district. (Ty to those who already did in the chat <3)

knottingpurple and I both live in the West Windsor-Plainsboro School District. TL;DR, our administration has turned down all requests to reactivate the middle school NSB team, citing "lack of money/resources" although all the money used to be paid out-of-pocket, not by the district, and they've never allocated any resources to us whatsoever. Help us get more young people into the World of Science simply by signing today!

Thank you all in advance!

I just want to say how creepy it is when your browsing scioly and you come across a thread on a specific school district that you go to. (I go to WWP CMS)

Well, to be fair, West Windsor Plainsboro is one of the more well-known Science Olympiad school districts in the country; coming across a thread started by people from there, or a discussion about the district, is not necessarily too far out of the ordinary.
