Subject: Science Olympiad 2016- team selection test 10/02/2015:
Thornton Jr High will be competing in the Science Olympiad 2016 on March 19th 2016. This is a very competitive event of multiple theory and build events. 30 kids will be selected to represent the school for this event forming 2 teams. The teams are not based on grade level. For more information on the event please visit www.scioly.org or http://www.bayareascioly.com/2016 Division B Events. Thornton has done very well in the past and in 2015 both teams ranked amongst the top 5 schools in the bay area
We invite all 7th and 8th graders who have an avid interest in science and are motivated to represent their school to attend the selection. Selection of the kids will be held on Friday October 2nd soon after school hours on the school premises. The exact location and timing will be confirmed to all those who sign up.
Selection will be based on a written assessment test. Since this event requires strong parent involvement and commitment from the child to work closely with others as a team, we request you to keep that in consideration before you sign up.
Test format: A set of 50 questions will be asked based on common 7th and 8th grade syllabi and also on the topics identified by Bay area Science Olympiad committee for 2016. See Div B event under http://www.bayareascioly.com/tournament.html
