Div C State Tournament 2015
Will be held on the
UW-Milwaukee campus on April 10th and 11th, 2015.
Expect many activities on Friday April 10th including an
Opening Ceremony with a Parade of Schools, Trial Events
and Team Registration will open at 9 am.
Based on feedback from WSO Coaches, we have decided to
cancel this year's Coach's Clinic at UW-Stout...sort of.
We will offer an online format this year in an attempt to
reach more coaches and students in Wisconsin. We are
planning on posting online videos from State Event
Supervisors. These videos will be posted early in 2015
once Event Supervisors and Teams really begin to
understand the details of the events.
Check back for more details.
Team Membership Fee:
To promote and improve student and teacher interest in
Wisconsin Science Olympiad, we are offering a reduced
membership fee for 2014-2015. New WSO high school teams
to join WSO will pay only $60, not the $300 membership
fee. To qualify for this reduced fee, the high school
team must be new to WSO or not have joined Wisconsin
Science Olympiad in the past five years.
To further encourage student participation
in WSO, the WSO Board has continued with the following fee
structure for 2014-2015. Team Membership will remain at
$300 for the first two teams registered from a school. Any
additional teams will be charged only $100.
What is Science Olympiad?
Students tell us "it is what makes school fun,"
coaches report that SO has "transformed their teaching and made it
much more enjoyable and rewarding," administrators have indicated
that SO teams at their schools have had a "tremendous positive
effect on student learning." Science Olympiad offers opportunities
for students to explore many areas of science, technology,
engineering and mathematics. It is the only competition in the US
that offers a team learning environment that stretches across many
areas of science and engages students of different knowledge and
skill sets. Science Olympiad offers creative challenges to all
students in interesting and applied areas of science which they
typically don't experience in the standard curriculum. All of the
SO events are closely tied to National Science Education
Standards, so these events offer exciting and creative ways for
teachers and students to engage in science education in K-12
