Science Olympiad : News and Info

IUPUI Invitational Tournament

  • All teams must register (submit completed registration form) by December 15, 2015.
  • Each competing school will be assigned a location as a designated site for the team to congregate and study for the competitions.  An adult supervisor should be in this area at all times.
  • All Science Olympiad events that take place in a classroom or laboratory are off limits to all observers.  However, designated events may be observed by teachers, chaperones, coaches, and students.
  • A coach from each participating team must run one of the events in the tournament per team entered.  Coaches should list five events that they would be willing to supervise on the registration form.
  • Event supervisors must bring all the materials that will be needed for the competition and adhere to the listed schedule.
  • Each event supervisor should bring a blank copy of their test, answer sheet and answer key for each of the participating schools in addition to the copies needed for the actual competition. 
  • After your event, make certain that the room is in the same condition as when you arrived.
  • Event supervisors are asked to score their events as quickly as possible and place the scores on the appropriate score sheets.  There are to be no ties.  As soon as the event is scored, take the score sheets and completed tests and blank materials to headquarters so that they may be appropriately logged and the winning teams determined. 
  • At the conclusion of the tournament each team will be provided with their tests and score sheets and a blank copy of the test and answer key for each event. 
  • If an aspect of the competition is in dispute all attempts should be made to resolve the issue by the coach and the event supervisor.  If that fails then the team coach should complete an appeal form and submit it to the arbitration committee headquarters.
  • All teams must have their ‘home room’ cleaned up and have all materials removed from the area before proceeding to the theater for awards. 
  • The individual medals will be presented to the top three finishers in each event.   Students will come onto the stage to receive awards after their team name is announced. Students should remain on the stage until all awards for that event have been announced. 
  • Team awards will be given to the top three teams.  When the team awards are announced, the entire team along with the coach(es) is to come forward as a group to accept the award. 
The regional tournament rules will be used at this invitational tournament.
