Please see very important notes below Clarifications.
The Akron Regional Tournament planners intend to emulate the National Schedules' event groupings, as printed in the 2019 rule books (pretend you are team 1), except:

Please understand that at a busy university, and when working with scores of enthusiastic but equally busy volunteer event supervisors, some room and schedule conflicts might arise that will result in schedule changes. We will try our best to stick to these groupings. Please plan your team assignments with the above, somewhat modified National Schedules' event groupings in mind, but please continue to build in extra coverage. Best intentions are plans, and sometimes plans must change.
We will freeze Clarifications and FAQ’s on February 28, 2019, meaning all adjustments posted at the state or national level, after that date, will not be applicable to Akron Regional.

All, please review the Science Olympiad Policies on Safety Goggles and Lasers (used for alignment in build events, like the car events…)

Let’s keep the students, supervisors and helpers safe. Supervisors, please enforce the rules for goggle type and laser type. Students without the required goggles should be given an opportunity, within their event’s scheduled hour, to go and get goggles.
Supervisors – please – you should wear goggles as appropriate. If you don’t own a pair, please ask us to pack goggles for you. firstname.lastname@example.org (soon please.)
Supervisors – please bring your own grading pens/pencils. Since students typically unstaple their test papers, please bring a stapler, or ask students to write team numbers on every page.
Coaches – please ask your students to write their team number on each page if they separate their papers.
Please contact us at ARSciOly@uakron.edu for more information.
