Latest Team News and Events
January 8th, 2017 - Westlake and Kenston
Hi guys! Westlake was yesterday, and the team did a great job. Congratulations to Northville HS for dominating the tournament, and good job to us as well. Solon B (team 44) placed in 15 events, and Solon A placed in 9, We took home 5 golds, more than any other team in the competition (except Mason, who also took home 5 golds). The Kenston schedule can be found here. We have Friday off this week so use it to study and prepare for all of your events. MIT is two weeks from now and Wright State three. These are some of the hardest invitationals of the season, and its important to be prepared for them. Results from Westlake are up under Results -> Latest Results
December 15th, 2016 - Results
HAPPY SNOW DAY EVERYONE! I hope all of you are using this time to be productive, or enjoying your day off or something. The results from Sylvania are up and can be accessed on the sidebar under Results --> Latest Results. Sorry for the delay. Also, Solon team 6 (yolo v2) placed second overall, not third, so congratulations again!
December 11th, 2016 - Sylvania
Hi guys. Sylvania was yesterday, and we did a really great job. Considering how a team of 9 individuals was able to place third (even after a sketchy event disqualification and half the mechanicals not working) we're off to a great start to the season. Congratulations to Mentor HS for winning the tournament. Remember to keep studying and building through the next invitational, and hopefully we can pull away with a win the next time. P.S. Results will be up in the next couple of days.
December 6th, 2016 - We're Back
The website is now back online after some technical difficulties for the past week and a half. It's good to be back. Apologies for any inconveniences while we were gone.
November 24th, 2016 - Happy Thanksgiving!
November 18th, 2016 - Sylvania
Hey guys. So Sylvania is coming up real soon. In less than a month our season starts and you guys probably want to start studying if you haven't already. Use the following weeks to contact your event partners and study with them, and use your trial tests to study as well.
November 3rd, 2016 - No Broken Streak ;_;
In true Cleveland style.
October 25th, 2016 - Go Indians!
September 27th, 2016 - Trial Test sign ups
A sign up sheet for next week's trial tests will be up on coach Geiger's door tomorrow morning. Make sure to sign up if you want to compete in those events.
September 22nd, 2016 - Third Meeting, Trial Test Information
The trial test schedule is out and can be accessed here. The trial tests begin the first week of October, and they're on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
If you have a conflict where two events of yours are scheduled for the same day, let the captains know and they will find a time for you to make up one of them. However, lab events CANNOT be made up, so please check the dates for those and plan ahead - these events include Chem Lab, Forensics, Material Science, and Experimental Design.
In other news, the Div B team has started their meetings/practices, and many of the coaches there are willing to coach high school students as well. Their meetings are on Thursday at 7pm at the middle school, although it appears there may be some schedule changes with the new head coach over there - let us know if you are interested in attending and we'll keep you posted.
Keep on studying for the trial tests, and keep on selling your chocolates.
September 15th, 2016 - Second Meeting
The chocolate sales have officially begun! If you haven't paid the $72 to get a box of chocolate, try to get a check to coach Geiger as quickly as you can with your name in the memo (also, team dues are $60 if you want to get both checks out of the way at once).
After selling your first box, you can buy more to take off from your dues or overnight tournament payments, just make sure to let the coaches know. Since most clubs haven't started selling their chocolate yet, now is a great time to get rid of a lot of your chocolate. You should be selling them at $1.50 each, or 2 for $3. Aggressively target everyone and force your chocolate bars onto them (just kidding, don't do anything dumb). Good luck!
Hard copies of rulebooks are available in coach Geiger's room. Pick up a copy (or print one out yourself) to start studying for trial tests. The trial tests for all study events start early October. All trial tests will be tests ONLY (no half-mechanicals or anything) with the exception of the lab-based chem events (chem lab, forensics). Trial tests will be Tuesdays and Thursdays after school, and we'll update you with the schedule as we get near October.
For anyone wanting to do the WIDI (write it do it) trial test, you need to make sure you have a partner that is willing to take the trial test with you. When the trial test comes, you need to make sure that both you and your partner can stay for the entire duration of the test. The partner that you choose will be your partner for the REST OF THE SEASON so make sure you partner up with someone you don't hate. For anyone who wants to borrow a textbook to study for the Dynamic Planet trial test contact either coach Geiger or Michael Zhan.
Also, check out the official science olympiad website by clicking the soinc tab on the right. A lot of useful information can be found there.
