  • Access to Structural 3D software - model and simulate the performance of your structure
  • Access to the Structural 3D - Science Olympiad App
  • Tutorials and Getting Started guides
  • Access for teams of 4 (under one account)

Frequently asked questions

You have questions, we have answers.
What is included in the Science Olympiad Account?

The Science Olympiad account gives you and your team full access to SkyCiv analysis software, file storage, tutorials and the Science Olympiad S3D app. SkyCiv Structural 3D is the main program used to model and test your boomilever and tower structures. You will model the structure (defining the location of the nodes, members and forces) then apply loads and test it for material stresses and deflection. This will allow you to digitally build the model, and simulate its performance, without physically building the structure.

How do I get started?

Simply click Buy Now to purchase your Science Olympiad account via credit card and receive instant access. Forget waiting to install or update the software! Since our software is completely web-based, you have immediate access to the programs and files from your internet browser.

How do I add my students?

With how this license is set up, you won't be adding the students individually to the license. Your team members/students will be able to login to SkyCiv at the same time (up to four maximum). They will login using the account details you provide during the purchasing process, specifically the Email and Password.

Do we share folders? Can we edit the model at the same time?

Each team will share a single account, so they share the same file manager. Users can create folders to organise their designs, but we recommend everyone get in there and try designs. Once you have your main model, you can only have one person in the file at the same time (you will be alerted if someone is editing at the same time). There is also file revision functionality, so you can always roll back a previous save.

Where are my files stored?

All the company files are private, encrypted on our server and backed up daily. You are protected and safe. Your files are stored on SkyCiv's secure servers which you can access at anytime. Please contact us if you have any further questions concerning your file management or security.

How many licenses should I purchase?

Regardless of how many students are on each team, you should purchase the same number of licenses as you have teams. E.g., if you have two teams that are submitting separate results, you should purchase two licenses, not one.

Does my account include any support?

Unfortunately, as this is a competition there is no support or help available for modelling and testing your Boomilever. We have some great guides and tutorials in our documentation, including some helpful videos. If you're experiencing issues with access or technical difficulties we can certainly help there.

Can I buy multiple seats at a time?

Absolutely. You can purchase accounts in bulk via this link. Once you have checked out you will be able to start adding teams individually or via our CSV upload functionality. Your teams will receive instant access and can start designing straight away! If you need to add more seats, you can always visit the same link again and add more.

How do I find the preset materials?

Once the app is installed, simply open the app from within SkyCiv Structural 3D. This will automatically override the materials with three Balsa wood materials for you to use. You can then select any of these materials to design your boomilever! Questions getting started?

How does Competition Mode work?

On the day of your competition event, participants will toggle the app into Competition Mode. Teams will then build their model with a clean canvas, sticking to the rules and limits provided by Science Olympiad. This mode will limit you to 5 solves, so use them wisely!

How do I host an Invitational using SkyCiv?

As an event coordinator you can host your own invitationals via the following steps:

  • Pick your weekend or event date
  • Email [email protected] and we'll create you a unique Event ID
  • (Optional) Purchase a pack of SkyCiv Accounts from the following checkout link and distribute them to the teams automatically
  • On the day of the event, students will submit their scores and select their unique Event ID from a dropdown list when submitting their scores
  • Coordinators can download the scores (in CSV format) at anytime with their own custom link provided by SkyCiv
