Each middle school team of 15 students prepares throughout the year to compete in Science Olympiad tournaments held on local, state, and national levels. Participants partner up to compete in a variety of events which include designing and building events, lab events, and study events. Hickman Charter’s team has won numerous local competitions and in addition has done very well at the state level. Science Olympiad offers a wonderful opportunity for parent educators to participate in raising the level of scientific awareness and academic achievement for their students while at the same time promoting cooperative learning and team spirit.
Regional Competition 2017!
If you are interested in joining our Junior High Science Olympiad team, please contact your EC. Please carefully consider your student(s)’s decision to participate. There is a high, whole-family, yearlong commitment of time expected with participation in Science Olympiad. While Hickman Charter School teachers and coaches are available to assist in obtaining study materials and resources, parents take on the responsibility of being the primary event coaches. Studying and building preparations for events take place throughout the school year, requiring coordination of practice and study sessions with event partner(s) on and off campus. Both students and parents need to be prepared to dedicate time and energy for the sake of the team’s success, beyond just the competition date(s).
"If we did the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astonish ourselves."
