Tandem Science Olympiad Teams Head to State Tournament this Weekend

Tandem Science Olympiad Teams head to UVA tomorrow, March 25, for the state-level competition they qualified for with their excellent regionals performance. Led by teacher Alex Siragy, Tandem's teams will be competing against teams from all over the state. The team's homebase location will be in CHEM 402 (the lecture hall in the Chemistry Building), and anyone from the community is welcome to drop in and say hi to team members who are not in the middle of participating in their events. Actual competition sites are located around campus. Please note that events are mostly closed-door. Open-door events include all events in the Slaughter Recreation Center. Exact room locations, times, and participating TFS students are noted below. Please note that TFS spectators are expected to not talk/cheer on TFS participants once they begin the event (failure to do this can result in a penalty for the team) and are only permitted to photograph or record video of TFS participants.
