Tech Olympic Fever!

Kurt Ottinger
Tech Olympics Coordinator

Come and participate in Tech Olympics, or just watch the fun, as undergraduate and high school student members test their tech skills in an instructive competition.

Tech Olympics is also a great way for students to get to know new people and network. This year Tech Olympics is 6:15 to 10:35 p.m. Friday, March 20. Events for this year are: Wiring a 2 Pin & Ground Connector; Costume Quick Change; Tape a Ground Plan; Hang and Focus a Lighting Instrument; Hook Up a Sound System; Knot Tying; Swaging (or Nicopress); and the Mystery Event.

Students can participate individually or in a team; teams are made up of between two and five students, and members of a team must be from the same school. Participants can register early by picking up a form from the call boards starting Thursday, March 19, but there will be registration at the door. Rules for the events will also be posted on the call board. Tech Olympic awards will be presented at Stage Expo on Saturday.

Anyone wishing to judge an event should contact Kurt Ottinger either by putting a note on the call board or e-mailing
