Dear Friends of Science,
Once again the Danbury Science Department would like to ask for your support as we will again
be holding a Science Olympics this year. All students in grades 6-8 will be participating in this event.
The Science Olympics will be a competition involving a variety of problem solving situations. This letter
is to ask for your assistance in making this 16 th Annual Danbury Science Olympics a continued success.
The Danbury Science Olympics will be held this year on Monday evening, March 11, 2019.
Your role will be to help run the individual competitions and collect data during those competitions in order
to determine the winner. The events this year will be Two Decks High, Target Catapult, 2-Man Danbury
Regatta, Floating Tower, The Great Airplane, Atza Mata For You, and Capsule Egg Drop. A description
of each event will be given at an informational meeting held before the competition. Judges need not
be “experts”, just have a general knowledge in the science field and care about helping young people
reach their fullest potential. If everything goes as planned, you will work in groups of 2-3 to run one of
the individual events and collect the results.
The competition will be held from 6:30-8:30. We ask that you please meet in Room 17 at
5:30pm for a brief meeting. At this time we will explain the different events and what general
expectations you should have of the students. We will then be able to answer any questions you may
have. If you are unable to arrive this early, arrangements will be made to accommodate a later arrival.
A complimentary meal will be served immediately following the meeting as a gesture of appreciation.
Every effort made to accept this invitation is appreciated. There is an online reply option which
we prefer you use, if you have access to the internet.  The form titled, “Science Olympics Interest Form”,
can be found at the bottom of this page. If you do not have access to the internet, please
call the middle school office at (419-798-2258). Mr. Thomas deHaas can also be reached
We would like to thank you in advance for the time and effort you will be giving to our local
Science Olympics. You will play an important role in helping not only the Danbury Local Science
Olympics to be a success, but also each of the students as they strive for academic excellence in science.
Thank you!
