Virginia 2021

Post by smayya337 » September 8th, 2020, 7:12 am

Hey everyone! Hope you're excited as I am for this season (unusual as it may be).

As always, make sure to check virginiaso.org for more information.

The Virginia Scilympiad page is at https://scilympiad.com/va/.

Tournaments:
  • Invitationals - Fairfax will be running their invitational on Jan 9, and Lake Braddock's will be on Dec 12 - thanks to sciolyperson1 for letting me know!
  • Regionals - Either the week of Feb 7 or the week of Feb 14 - one week long MiniSO (Scilympiad) tournament
  • States - Late March/early April - decision regarding format to be announced in January
Other notes:
  • The team limits are unchanged from last year - three teams with fifteen members each, maximum.
  • VASO is allowing high school coaches to give student leadership access to their online portal.
  • Introducing the VASO Student Outreach Network! Founded by a group of my friends in association with the state chapter, the network is intended to promote connections between teams and mentorship opportunities. Keep an eye out for more information!

This sounds interesting... I wonder what the difference will be between this event and test-only detector.

As I understand it, Detector Design is intended to be almost identical to Detector Building, except without the physical probe - so in addition to the test, there'll also be coding and data modeling, and I believe you'll have to still make a log.

Another important clarification coming from VASO - each individual partner may bring a set of resources (binder/cheat sheet), rather than one per team.
