Mr. Anton Tomlinson will be here on Monday, February 28th, 2011 to speak about the New York City Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics (ACT-SO). All juniors and seniors are encouraged to attend this presentation. The meeting will take place period 9 in room A318.
The ACT-SO program has two major components — regularly scheduled enrichment workshops and the “Olympics of the Mind” competition and ceremony. During the workshops, which are held during the academic year, volunteer coaches work with students on projects and assignments designed to enhance the students’ knowledge and skills in the Sciences, Arts and Humanities. Additional components of the workshops are seminars and trips designed to introduce students to their cultural heritage and other workshops to prepare them for college and employment. The program culminates with the “Olympics of the Mind” competition and awards ceremony which give the students an opportunity to showcase their projects and to be recognized for their achievements.
