We would like to have a large contingent of Cobb County Middle School Teams competing at the 2nd annual Dodgen Science Olympiad Invitational Tournament. Registration opens Tuesday night (10/27) at 8:00 pm here: https://sites.google.com/site/dodgensciolyinvitationalreg/home. There will be two divisions at the tournament – one for experienced teams and one for newer teams so your students will be competing with teams with similar Science Olympiad experience.
Please contact Kathy Jacobson, Debbie Amodeo or Tom Brown if you have questions about the invitational or Science Olympiad. Either register on-line or email Kathy (firstname.lastname@example.org) by October 29th if you think your school might be interested in participating and she will then hold a space for your team until November 10th while you do your final checks on assembling a team of 15 students. There are a limited number of scholarships available for schools in need.
