On the momentous occasion of our 20th year, SelaQui International School is proud to complete its score and bring to the valley the First Inter-School Science Decathlon, 'QSD '19' on August 23-24, 2019. Included along with this mail are the details of the events comprising the decathlon.
The Science Decathlon is not any other academic competition. It is not for the best physicist or chemist. It is not about individual brilliance and portraying your glorious acumen in the Sciences. It is about challenging competitors and your team whose members who will become lifelong comrades. It is about outperforming your own expectations in a set of 10 events, where you will be part of a team, of students with a wide range of grades, striving towards a shared goal.
The Decathletes will master materials and harness skills beyond their wont. They will explore unique opportunities in the Sciences in these events - be it in Physics, Chemistry, Biology or Computer Science. They will engage with the audience through facts as well as with confidence.
We would love to see Decathlon Teams taking on this opportunity not because it will be easy but because it will be challenging. The poet and novelist Rainer Maria Rilke once wrote, "that something is difficult must be a reason the more for us to do it". The Science @ SelaQui invites you to be a part of an occasion that might sound overwhelming, until you realize you can achieve higher as a team. You and your team will study, research and struggle more than ever before without knowing about future triumphs. In the words of Dr. Les Martisko, we invite you to struggle and to learn - "not just to read, but to understand; not just to win, but to lead."
The Decathlon team will have a maximum of 10 students from grades 6 to 12 of each school accompanied by a teacher for the entire duration of the event. The registration fee is Rs. 5000/- per team plus accommodation charges as requested by the school. The itinerary will be sent on confirmation of registration. The registration deadline is the 31st of July 2019, and confirmation of participation will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis, with a maximum of 10 schools. Please contact the QSD '19 Coordinators for your confirmation,
Mr. Sahil Bhardwaj (+917665112422) and Mr. Soham Roy (+919831632079) at firstname.lastname@example.org
We await the Decathletes in the verdant 52 acres of SelaQui.
