Physics and Astronomy


You will need this section only if you are organizing an event for more than one class.

Now that you have decided to hold a Science Olympics, you will have to set up the organization.

It is best to establish an organizing committee. It can be quite small, but it will allow you to share the work load. Its responsibilities include:

  1. Select a date. Make sure it is suitable to those you plan to invite. For example, do not plan it close to the exam period or the science fair.

  2. Select a location. Indoor? Outdoor? Not too large or too small. Facilities for participants, spectators etc...

  3. Select the participants. The number involved will determine the size of the support staff, and their age will determine the amount of supervision required.

  4. Select the events. You may want to develop some of your own.

  5. Prepare a budget. This is necessary if you need to seek funds from sponsors or school boards to pay for operating costs.

  6. Select judges.

  7. Contact the media.

These activities are not necessarily listed in order. You may find that some have to be accomplished simultaneously, while others are unnecessary.
