Homeschool Science Colorado (google us and look for us on Youtube) was founded in Fall 2008 and we entered our first competition Spring 2009 with a small and young B team that took the Southern Regional and State Competitions by storm with third place finishes in each. In Fall 2009 we added a C team to our club. We finish our 2011 competition season with our B division team taking 2nd at State, 12 points away from the winners, and our C division team placing an impressive fifth place to which we say, "Just wait till we have seniors on the team." Our students work hard and have learned to be resourceful and dedicated learners. Our parents are our coaches, our kitchen tables are our labs, and a good search engine is our favorite resource.
We start the 2011-12 year with the addition of a JV team, composed mainly of little brothers and sisters of our competitive teams. These young scholars will be getting their feet wet, participating in events that in the past they cheered on their big brothers and big sisters.
Our mission is to provide participants, parents, coaches and all involved with the team a positive learning experience in the fields of Science. To compete as a team in Science Olympiad with character described in the Rule Handbook. To instill not only in ourselves but in our team a sense of pride and integrity that may be passed on for years to come.
