ATX Scioly’s second annual Coaches’ Clinic will be held on Saturday, September 28th.
The Coaches’ Clinic
ATX Scioly holds an annual coaches clinic to help local Texas teams improve their Science Olympiad skills. In the past, clinics have covered numerous topics essential to Science Olympiad success including team management, recruitment, resource procurement and individual event strategy. In addition we have offered in-depth “Master Classes” targeting specific events such as Astronomy and Algorithm Design. All the presenters at our clinic have hundreds of hours of Science Olympiad experience and many of them have medaled at the national level. We want to share everything we’ve learned with the next generation of Science Olympians!

Our two in-depth master classes for this year will be held on Astronomy and Data Science (formerly Algorithm Design).
The Astronomy Master Class will be taught by our Tournament Director, Aditya Shah, a rising sophomore majoring in Chemical Engineering. Aditya has competed in Astronomy almost the entirety of high school and has loved the subject since he competed in Solar System in middle school. He has written Astronomy tests at several prestigious tournaments, including MIT and Nationals, where he medaled twice in the event, including a 1st place! He also is a Nationals Event Supervisor, MIT Event Supervisor, scioly.org moderator, and mentors Science Olympiad teams across the country.
Our Data Science Masterclass will be taught by Dhruva Karkada, a rising junior majoring in Computer Science, Physics, and Astronomy at UT! As a competitor for Clements High School, he competed in events covering everything from Astronomy to Electric Vehicle, all which being the team's Building Coordinator. Last year, he combined his passions to make the Data Science event, which, due to its success at this spring's regional, is now an official state event! In his free time, Dhruva enjoys working out, swimming, and programming, because "programming builds character".
