Free Opportunity for B/C Students: UNCW GIS Day November 20th
Division B and C Coaches,
The UNCW Department of Geography and Geology is partnering with CESTEM and Science Olympiad to celebrate International Geographic Information Sciences (GIS) Day on Thursday, Nov. 20 with several activities to promote geospatial research, including: programs for grade-school students, a career panel for UNCW students, and a research symposium. The Education GIS (Middle and High School events) activity of this great day will be from 3-5 pm.
Science Olympiad coaches are strongly encouraged to register your competing students in this event, or even register your team. The events are free and open to the campus and community, but registration (PDF) is required. There are only 20 spots available!
Register here: http://uncw.edu/gis/currentevents.htm
Middle School students will use GIS to prepare for the Road Scholar Science Olympiad event and High School students will get outside to collect field data and then use GIS to make maps of the UNCW campus.
“We will be hosting a full day of activities dedicated to geospatial technologies for community members, middle school and high school students and alumni, as well as faculty and students from a multitude of departments on campus who conduct geospatial research," said assistant professor Eman Ghoneim, director of the Remote Sensing Research Laboratory. “This event fits into UNCW’s commitment to teaching, research and service.”
Coaches, register your kids today! This is a great (and free) opportunity!
Science Olympiad Fall Regional Coaches Workshop
Reminder – The 2nd Annual Wilmington Regional Coaches clinic for middle and high school events will be Saturday, November 15th from 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM in the Watson College of Education (Room 223) on UNC Wilmington’s Campus. We invite all Divisions B/C coaches, parents, and high school support folks from Southeastern North Carolina to attend this clinic. Spaces are limited and filling fast! Participants will engage in a variety of different Olympiad events as well as have an opportunity to discuss regional event particulars with state and regional directors. Participants will leave with materials to support their local Olympiad teams.
Thanks to some amazing coordination efforts on CESTEM’s part, we are so very lucky to have reserved Ms. Kelly Fair, our Middle & High School State Science Olympiad Director! Kelly is traveling from Raleigh to Wilmington and going to lead many of the events with support from event writers. See the attached flyer for details.
We need any interested coaches to RSVP online (http://www.uncw.edu/cestem/pd.html) or call 962-3168 as soon as you are able to confirm that you can attend! This is not a mandatory attendance event. It is an opportunity to get further event information and resources about specific Olympiad. The fees for the workshop are $75 per person. The workshop is open to coaches, teachers, parents and administrators.

Wilmington Regional Science Olympiad Tournament Date
Dear Wilmington Regional B/C Olympiad Coaches,
I hope everyone is having a great Fall Semester! I know the state Science Olympiad office is earnestly preparing for the each 2015 Regional Science Olympiad, and we are looking ahead to our Wilmington regional tournament.
The Wilmington Regional tournament date is tentatively planned for Saturday, March 7th, 2015 (the first Saturday in March). Please understand that our region’s schedule is predicated on UNCW’s academic and athletic schedules as well as Hanover Gym’s availability. If there are any changes to the day (there shouldn’t be), you all will be the first to know!
I attended the Regional Directors Meeting over the summer (Tuesday, July 29th) at NC State’s Science House. We had many discussions about events, schedules, funding and participation. I can share more information as needed. The North Carolina B/C (middle, high school) events have been posted, so it's not too early to start preparing! The Wilmington Region will make every possible effort to exactly mimic the state schedule, and I don’t see any reason why this year would be any different. The B/C event list for 2015 is posted here: http://www.sciencenc.com/events.php.
Looking forward to working with everyone this year!
