Yale Invitational 2014


The inaugural Science Olympiad Division C Invitational Tournament at Yale University will be held on Saturday, January 18, 2014 on Yale's historic campus in New Haven, Connecticut, conveniently located within a mere two hour's drive from New York City and Long Island. The competition is entirely run by Yale undergraduate students under the mentorship of Brendan Herlihy, Connecticut State Science Olympiad Director.

Though invitational tournaments generally rely on the participating schools and teams to write exams and bring everything required for events, we are taking a different approach. All materials will be furnished by YUSO members and Yale faculty and departments. Exams will be written by Yale students, event supplies bought with the organization's budget, and venues paid for by the group through Yale as well. Contrary to the local public high schools that usually hold such tournaments, we have enough resources to help carry the tournament from start to finish, and intend to do exactly that. However, coaches are still expected to assist in running and supervising events, as with all other SO competitions, and there is also a registration fee. Other than that, teams need only register and show up prepared to compete!
