• Welcome to General Greene's Science Olympiad! 

    I am so excited to bring this competitive after school program to General Greene! 

    What is Science Olympiad?

    In a nutshell, Science Olympiad, is a chance for students who are good at STEM to go deeper into the curriculum than we can in the regular classroom.  (STEM-Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Students learn, study, experiment, build and test, in preparation for competing against other students just like them.  Science Olympiad is amazing because students can shine in elementary, middle and high school! 

    For more specific information, see our Youtube video or go to Science Olympiad of North Carolina.  

     

    Our Team

    We started our first team in January of 2019. As this was our first endeavor into Science Olympiad. We competed amongst ourselves for Dojo points.  Students learned about each of the events through fun activities and special visitors. We spent a lot of time on teamwork but mostly had lots of fun.  Our team celebrated on May 15th with Rocket Launches, Car K'nex Vehicle Races and a fun video.

    In 2019-2020 we had both a junior team and a varsity team club.  The varsity team was made up of top participants from the Spring and Fall's junior teams.  We were set to compete against other schools until Covid canceled the competition. 

    In the Winter of 2022, we returned and ended the club with a rocket celebration. In the school year of 2022-2023 we had both a junior team in the fall and a varsity team in the winter.  Our team placed in 12/15 events and won 1st place overall.  

    We are Back!

    We will be having 2 sessions of Science Olympiad. 

    Session 1 is open to any fourth or fifth graders who did have not participated in Science Olympiad before.  This session will go from September through November.  We will meet on Thursdays from 2:45-4:00. 

    Session 2 will only be open to kids from session one or were previously in Science Olympiad.  This will be the competitive team and students will have extra work as part of this team.  We hope to compete in March 2024.  I am only allowed to accept 18 students, so students who are interested will be ranked according to their skill and participation level from the previous session.  More information will be forthcoming.

    Some of the things we will be doing are robotics with coding, engineering with duct tape, Crime Scene Investigation, soda bottle rockets, human body centers and cyphers.  

    Applications are due to Ms. Baldwin by September 18th.  No late submissions will be accepted.  I will contact all applicants the following week.
