The NASA WVSGC will sponsor ten Marshall University undergraduate students, who will take on the role of virtual undergraduate coaches and directly work with 15 students (and their teacher) who are on the 2021 West Virginia State Championship Science Olympiad team (WVSO team) from Cabell Midland High School. WV has recently started sending a state championship team regularly to the National SO tournament since 2015. This undergraduate virtual coaching led by Dr. Sean P McBride, Assistant Professor, Marshall University Department of Physics, will assist and train the WVSO team to excel at the national tournament, increasing the image of the state of West Virginia. The national tournament is being held virtually. Student mentoring this year will be assisting the WVSO team with exam preparation. These ten student coaches will belong to Marshall university’s award-winning university chapter of the Society of Physics Students or the Science Olympiad student organization.
