Voyager Academy Science Olympiad News, February 3, 2019

A TEAM:
For those of you that are new to the team, each year all the teams (A, B, and C) vote on the student-submitted designs to select the office Voyager Science Olympiad t-shirt design, Each team picks their shirt color to wear to their tournament.  It's a great way for all the teams to be connected across the schools.  
  • VOTING:  Follow this link to vote on your favorite design and the A team's official team color for the year.
  • SHIRT SIZES:  We also need T shirt sizes AND orders for additional shirts (adults or siblings).  If you still need to give us your T shirt size (A varsity team members, you do!) and/or to order additional shirts, click here.  **IN-SCHOOL PARTICIPANTS: we already have all of the students' size!
All VOTES and SHIRT SIZES must be received by Sunday, February 3.


Elementary In-School Program: This will be our 4th week! The Ramp and Roll class has been making k'nex vehicles and discussing gravity, mass and variables. The Super Sleuths finished their first case and are now gathering information on how their substances smell, look, dissolve in water and testing pH.  The Sky Quest group had fun games related to constellations and now will be beginning their exploration of the planets!  

B TEAM:

The countdown is on...the regional tournament is on March 2 at Riverside High School.  There are THREE official practices remaining before the tournament (all practices are on Saturdays from 9-12).  In addition to regularly scheduled practices, students are encouraged to work on their own.  Putting in the extra time will take you to the next level on competition day!!!
