Deadlines: Build Events/Self-Scheduled Event Signup

Assigning students to build events in the Compliance Heading -> Student/Team/Event Assignment does not automatically assign students to their self-scheduled events. Coaches have to sign up for self-scheduled events. To sign up, go to Head Coach Dashboard --> Self-Scheduled Event Signup under Sign Up heading.

Student Login Instructions Using Login ID

Student Login Instructions Using Email Student Scilympiad Login Credentials

Students previously competed in tournaments using Scilympiad platform may use the same Login IDs/Emails and passwords for all tournaments. Login IDs/Emails and passwords stay the same throughout the season.

Collaboration During the SO Practice

Partners are welcomed to use the built-in text-based chat in scilympiad.com to communicate with their partner(s) during the event. Teams are also permitted to use other forms of communications unless otherwise prohibited by coaches and/or school districts. Make sure computers are able to run selected communication formats.

Resources/Reference Materials

As a reminder, if not already allowed, each individual participant can have a personal set of reference materials (e.g., binders, single sheets of paper), calculator, or other academic resource as specified in the specific event rule for use during the competition to facilitate social distancing, isolation, and to prevent resource sharing. Personal sets of resource materials must meet all the criteria established in the specific event rule.

Teams can decide how they want to arrange their resources as they best understand the circumstances under which they are competing and what their overall strategy might be. Using Anatomy and Physiology as an example, each partner may choose to have two different sets of notes so Partner A tackles all the muscle questions and Partner B tackles all the skeleton questions.

Please note that all resources used must still follow the event rules (e.g. in the form of binders, note sheets, etc.) With the exception of Astronomy which allows a computer/tablet as resources, notes in general cannot be in a digital format. We understand the cost and burden on teams to create a new binder, especially for such an early tournament. We ask that teams follow this rule so that it’s equitable to all teams.
