We are super excited to announce that Duke University Science Olympiad will be hosting the third annual Duke Invitational on January 15th, 2022! Registration will open 12:00 AM ET on Monday, November 1st, 2021! Online payment will be open on Monday, November 8th, 2021. More information + updates can be found on our website at https://dukescioly.org.
This year we will be hosting our tournament under the Satellite SO model. On Scilympiad, all tests will open on January 15th, 2022 at 9am ET and close on January 16th, 9am ET. Teams will still have a time limit of 50 minutes to take the test but may take them anytime over the 24 hour testing window. Grading will occur throughout the week; results will be announced and awards will be shipped the following weekend. Due to logistical constraints, the tournament will run 20 Division C national events, as well as 3 trial events. Tests will be written by experienced alumni at Duke and former Science Olympiad competitors from the highest level of competition!
There is a registration fee of $40, with $20 for each additional team. We are also willing to help teams that need financial aid or planning to come to our tournament!
Although the COVID-19 pandemic has created new challenges for everyone in the Science Olympiad community, we promise to make our virtual tournament as accommodating and engaging as possible. We hope to see you at our tournament in January! If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
