On Saturday, February 2, 2013, NISTEM and the IPFW Colleges of Arts and Sciences and Engineering sponsored the fifth annual regional Science Olympiad tournament for Division C (high school) teams in northeast Indiana on the IPFW campus. Six teams from four schools competed in 23 different events spanning life science, earth and space science, physics, chemistry, engineering and scientific inquiry. Students were awarded over 200 Olympic-style medals in these events and one team, Northridge-Green, won the right to advance to the State Tournament at Indiana University Bloomington in March 2013. Two additional teams, Bishop Dwenger and Canterbury- Newton, advanced to a Wild Card tournament at Ivy Tech in Lafayette, the winner of which will also advance to state.
The participant teams were:
Canterbury - Einstein
Canterbury - Newton
New Tech @ Wayne – Unable to participate due to weather
Northridge - Green
Northridge - Gold
Pictures of the tournament are coming soon.
In 2011 we survived bad weather scares, and the competition went very smoothly. A enjoyable time was had by all! Full results can be found here.
The 2-3 inches of snow that fell in Fort Wayne on Friday night could not prevent 6 regional high schools teams from participating in the second annual IPFW Regional Science Olympiad Tournament on Saturday, February 6, 2010. Participating teams were: Canterbury, Einstein, Canterbury Newton, Carroll, Columbia City, East Noble and Manchester.
We conducted 27 events and awarded 228 Olympic style medals in the day-long tournament. The top placing teams are: Canterbury Newton, first place; Manchester, second place; and Carroll, third place. Full results can be found here.
By placing first and second, Canterbury Newton and Manchester have qualified to advance to the Indiana State Science Olympiad tournament at Indiana University in Bloomington on March 20, 2010. Also, Carroll has qualified to compete in a Wild Card tournament at Ivy Tech Community College in Lafayette on March 6, 2010.
