About

BECOME A SCIENCE OLYMPIAD COACH!

Do you have just 90 minutes a week to help a high-school team compete in the Massachusetts Science Olympiad?

Each year, Cambridge students prep for and participate in this competition, an academic track meet with over 20 individual team events in such areas as genetics, earth science, chemistry, anatomy, physics, mechanical engineering, and technology: https://www.soinc.org/about. Cambridge School Volunteers is seeking people with knowledge of the STEM fields to coach these two-person student teams, for about 90 minutes, one afternoon a week, from December until mid-March. The day-long Massachusetts Science Olympiad, to which coaches are invited but are not required to attend, will be held on March 17th, 2018, at Framingham State University.

To become a Science Olympiad coach (aka advisor) for the Cambridge Rindge and Latin School team, you must first sign up for an orientation.

We're offering a choice of two dates for Science Olympiad Volunteer Orientation:

Nov. 9, 2017 at 9:30 a.m.
