Last year state was dominated by the Bloomingtons!! lol They did a great job but I do hope to see a bit more competition this year! Valpo is a great school and I hope they get up there again. Of course there are a ton of excelent schools in IN, which is what makes it so much fun and stressful, am I right?

Hey Indiana!!

I am a freshman at the University of Notre Dame who is actually from NY. I've competed in the Western Long Island Regional 6 times (twice in Div B and four times in Div C) as well as the NYS Science Olympiad four times (two times in each division). I have also served as an event supervisor in the Div B competition while competing at the Div C level.

To be perfectly honest, this past year without Science Olympiad has been pretty boring so I'm trying to take on a new task. It is my intention to host a regional competition at the University of Notre Dame as soon as next year (2012). However, before I approach the university and ask for its permission, I wanted to see if you had any information that you think I should know.

I come from a regional where I compete in a single Division C competition where 70+ teams compete for 7 spots to the state tournament. From what I heard, in Indiana, regionals host both divisions the same day and only host a max of 12 teams per division. I'd also love to know what you all love about your regionals and wish could be improved on! I truly feel that UND would be great for a SciOly competition and I want to see if you feel the same way! Please post! I promise to read!

Your Fellow Science Olympaid (and hopefully Regional Coordinator),

I heard something about Notre Dame putting in a bid for a state tournament in a few years? Any truth to that?

I think that Notre Dame having a Regional would be a cool idea. I don't know how many schools there are exactly that are relatively close to Notre Dame but i'm sure you could get a group together that would be commited go, the only problem I can think of is that there are obviously set sites already in place for regionals...
In Indiana you don't have 70 teams at a regional... you have like... 12 at MAX, most of the time it's closer to 8. They're competing over 1, or 2 (sometimes 3) spots to state. Our state comp is roughly 24ish teams and it's fairly competitive (from our standpoint).
If it turns out ND can't have a regional tournament you could always host an invitational. I know a lot of schools in that area who compete in several invitationals throughout the year and it's always fun having an invitational at a college. on the one hand you get to see what the college is really like and the professors running events usually write really good tests.
Hope this helps some!


Also in other news, who is heading to the Northridge Invite this weekend? There's supposed to be a LOT of schools, any of you guys?

I went to Northridge! That was a great invitational - and a really nice high school! The night before we went to the mixer with the Northridge teams; it was really fun!

My team took third! I won Wind Power and Experimental Design, and placed in Forensics, Technical Problem Solving, and Astronomy.

Yeah, I helped out at Goshen with Junkyard and watched some of the other building events. There were some pretty cool devices.

Wildcard tournament? There's such a thing as a wild card in SO?

I don't know a whole lot about it, but here's the gist. In Indiana, 1 (sometimes 2) schools move on from regionals to state. But then the team that was one away from going to state goes to the wildcard tournament. At the wildcard tournment, composing of one team from each of the regionals, the team that wins overall gets to move on to state as well. They do it because some regionals are more competitive than others and they wanted to make it more fair for those that got an unlucky bid.

Note: If anyone has been to a wildcard tournament and can expound upon a bit feel free to!!

ALSO: Was the Purdue Calumet Regional today? If so, anyone know the results??

Great job Northridge!!! I can't believe your score. We are done for the year, however I will be cheering for you all to go to the National tournament. Nothing again the Bloomington schools, but it would be nice to see someone else go for a change; and for it to be a smaller school. I think you have a good chance with the state tournament on more "neutral" ground. Good luck!!!
