Congratulations to Roger Zou and Yuxi Liu, our new captains for the 2011-2012 Season!
What new wonders, undreamt of in our past, will become wrought in another season? and another? How far will our great team have wandered by the end of next year? And the next decade? Our extraordinary alumni, arrayed on many nations and beyond, will be unified by their common heritage, by their laggard for their second home in humble Room 240, and by the knowledge that whatever Science Olympiad may be, the only SOLON Science Olympians in all the universe, come from here.
Infinite thanks to our captains, Eugene Rabinovich and Stephanie Sang, and the rest of the graduating seniors for helping to make last season the most memorable and successful yet!
We will be recognized June 13th by the Solon Board of Education, and June 15th by the Ohio House of Representatives in Columbus for our tremendous success last season.

Despite facing the drudges of antagonistic weather, we managed to draw from our courage and bravery of heart and raise $70 during today's car wash. The forces of nature put up an admirable stance; at some points, persistent drizzle and ominous, darkly-shrouded clouds threatened to dispel our spirits. However, that could not stop Solon Science Olympiad's determination. With sponges and hoses in hand, we prevailed. We shall carry this attitude throughout the season.
- July 22, 2010 -
Thank you for all of your efforts at our last car wash - we raised about $160! Our second car wash is this Sunday, July 25, 11 am - 3 pm at the same location. Also, we have moved our Scavenger Hunt to Saturday, August 21, from around 5-10 pm. More details will be available later.
