Science Olympiad Info

Before each required question there is the link to an activity that you will need to copy and paste into your browser to explore.  If you read the question it will let you know what to do while you explore.  You are mainly exploring the activities, playing the games, and having fun!  Next, answer the question on the Google form.  Then, move onto the next question.  When you have answered all the questions, submit your form.  It comes to me automatically. We have quite a few submissions that we are lacking. We need everyone in order to complete with other schools!  The more we have participating, the better chance we have at a trophy based off how many of you participate!  Remember, you will not get an individual medal unless you participate.  You have to fill the form out guys!
