Event Slate Update January 22, 2021
The National Science Olympiad Office has updated their 2021 National Tournament Event Slate to run all the Technology and Engineering Design events as optional trial events. Write It, CAD It from Inquiry and Nature of Science was also made into a trial event.
Based on the updated national tournament event slate and to reduce risk for students testing outside, the Southern California Regional and State Directors decided to run the following events as medal-only events (Participants will still earn individual medals for top 6 finishes): - Mousetrap Vehicle B - Gravity Vehicle C - Mission Possible B
The three events listed above will be medal-only events for both the Southern California Regional and State Tournaments. Please see the updated Regional schedule and the updated 2021 Events and Modifications document.
Many schools remaining locked down with students unable to access their devices, resources, or testing location helped influence this difficult decision.
