Homeschool Science Colorado - Code of Conduct

All members of Homeschool Science Colorado are expected to abide by the HSC Code of Conduct. Please contact us with any questions.

Code of Ethics

All participants must be willing to work with others and compete with other teams in accordance with the Rules and Code of Ethics of the National Science Olympiad organization. From the National Science Olympiad Code of Ethics:

Student participants are expected to compete in tournament events with honest effort to follow the rules and the spirit of the competition. Team members are expected to be the builders of all the devices used in the events. The goal of competition is to give one's best effort while displaying honesty, integrity, and sportsmanship. Students, coaches, parents, and guests are expected to display courtesy and respect toward Olympiad officials, other teams, and guests of the Olympiad. Failure to show honesty and/or courtesy by a participant, coach, or guest of the team may result in the disqualification of the team from that event, the entire tournament or future tournaments.

General Behavior

Given that part of the HSC mission is to compete with excellence, character and integrity, behavior and language during any Science Olympiad event, meeting or tournament should reflect those values.
