Cambridge School Volunteers seeks scientists of all stripes to advise teams of two students as they prepare for the March statewide competition in the Science Olympiad. The olympiad events still in need of advisors are:

Codebusters (cryptography)


Remote Sensing

Detector Building

Green Generation

Rocks and Minerals

Experimental Design

Volunteer advisors for teams that are building machines or structures will be asked to volunteer in person at CRLS, 459 Broadway, when conditions allow. Those advising students whose events involve test-taking at the March event may volunteer primarily through videoconferences with their team.
