Results for the 2014 Science Olympiad State Tournament.
Thank you all for participating in the 2014 Science Olympiad.
The preliminary schedules for the events are available below. The schedules follow the national tournament schedule for Division B (teams 21-30) and Division C (01-10), with a few modifications because of conflicts in room assignments and judges’ schedules. For Division B, the times for Simple Machines and Heredity were swapped. For Division C, the times for Chemistry Lab and Compound Machines were swapped and the time for Write it, Do it was moved to the fifth time slot.
The scheduled events are blocked out for either the morning or afternoon. You may sign up for time for these events at the link <http://www2.mysignup.com/cgi-bin/view.cgi?datafile=tsostbuildingevents>. If you have any problem with the scheduling, please contact Jessica at 865-974-0756 or <email@example.com>.
There are a couple of changes to the event schedule. Write it Do it is back to its original slot. The coordinator has worked out a way to allow time for grading without changing the time slot.
The event coordinator for Technical Problem Solving wants more time to conduct the exams. I have blocked out the two periods before to spread out the teams. I will have a sign up schedule for that event figured out soon. It will help if you anticipate conflicts to email me or Jessica to let me know. I’ll try to avoid those.
A sign-up for Technical Problem Solving is now set up on the mysignup web page, linked above. The event will be done in chunks with seven teams for each time slot.
The Elastic Launched Glider and Helicopters events will be held in the UT sports bubble, near the Aquatic Center. It has 24,000 sq ft of space with a high ceiling — no rafters, although the ceiling is curved.
