Information for 2023

There are 14 events this year! Most events involve building and testing things like paper airplanes, clay boats, or straw rockets, and then competing in a challenge at the tournament. A few events involve learning about a topic like birds, the human body, or chemistry, and then taking at test at the tournament. 

Descriptions of all the events can be found on WESO's event page.


Practices start February 12, and take place every Sunday afternoon until the tournament on May 13. (except for Spring Break).
