Seven Lakes Invitational 2017

Postby Adi1008 » July 31st, 2017, 10:09 pm

Seven Lakes High School is excited to announce our first-ever Division C invitational tournament on Saturday, December 2nd, 2017! Our website is now live and registration will open later in August.

A few distinguishing features of our tournament we think you'll like:

  • Stress-free scheduling: In the interest of consistency and helping students avoid conflicts, our invitational will follow the 2017-2018 national schedule conflicts, which are released at the beginning of every year by Science Olympiad Inc.
  • Experienced Hosts: As experienced competitors with alumni links to invitationals like Rice, UT, and Golden Gate Science Olympiad, we will strive to run our tournament with the same impeccable quality and ruthless efficiency.
  • Quality Events: Every event will be well-run and will follow the official rules manual. Tests will be designed in a manner such that they will challenge even the most knowledgeable competitor, and yet remain accessible to students just starting out. Engineering and lab events will be set up and run properly to ensure that every student's hard work is allowed to reach its potential.
  • Less work for you: All events will be written, reviewed, or run by members of the Seven Lakes Science Olympiad team or alumni. This means that coaches and parents will not be required to write tests or volunteer at the invitational, leaving them free to focus solely on coaching and supporting their own teams.
The goal of this invitational is to enrich the Science Olympiad experience of high school students across the state of Texas and provide them with ample practice for future competitions, such as Regionals or State. Furthermore, we aim to foster growth in TSO by encouraging new teams and giving them an accessible tournament. To that end, we hope to see you all at the tournament in December!

Do you plan on hosting a tournament for Division B as well as Division C? I personally feel that many Division B teams, including ours, would love to come if one existed.

Thank you for your interest! This year, we do not plan to host Division B at our tournament in addition to Division C. This is our first invitational, and we want to make sure we do everything exceedingly well before expanding into running both divisions.

However, we very much anticipate running Division B at our tournament in future years, possibly as soon as the 2018-2019 school year! Many of us were Division B competitors ourselves and want to give back to the organizations that helps us get started.

Hey everyone,

We've decided to release our test and keys from the invitational! Here is the link: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/10ADANsfPli3tkieZZoGZ4j2yDt3tZs1I. Hopefully this can be of some use to you. Feel free to use these tests to study for the upcoming season, or because you just love Science Olympiad a lot.

Thanks!
