UPDATE: Invitational Postponed

f42f04b590c553c67a76798f6098-grandeDespite our best optimism the weather is playing havoc with our event this weekend. Due to a number of team already unable to travel to New Albany and another really bad storm expected overnight and tomorrow we have decided to postpone our event. We will have a new date early next week. If you are registered for this event please check your email for updates.

More than anything we want to be able to run a safe and fair competition. When teams can’t make it, event supervisors can’t make it. This means not all events go on. Weather also creates hazardous traveling conditions and many teams have to travel 2 or more hours to get to us.

Please stay tuned for our new date soon.

2015 Invitational Will Run As Scheduled!

DSC_4995Weather is playing it’s part in this years Invitational. We are planning on running as scheduled unless there is a travel ban in our county (very unlikely at this point). We ask teams to use their discretion when traveling and to give extra time to arrive safely and ready to compete.

New Albany Science Olympiad Featured In The Paper…

New Albany Science Olympiad was recently featured in a story by This Week: New Albany.

DSC_0032Our Invitational is of particular interest to our local community. Most people, including some new district administrators are unaware how big our program really is. They are always pleasantly surprised to find out that Central Ohio’s largest and most rigorous STEM competition is hosted by the New Albany Plain Local School District!

It’s actually one of the largest STEM competitions in the state!

This year, over 1500 middle and high school students from 8 states will compete in 23 science events. Our guest list includes 9 national qualifying teams as well as the best teams from all of Ohio.

The public is invited to observe many of our engineering competitions beginning at 8:30 am on Feb. 21 at the New Albany Learning Campus. Events include flying gliders, various vehicles, robot challenges, and even an event featuring student built air cannons that use only gravity as a power source!
