As part of GENIUS Olympiad, you will experience Niagara Falls State Park’s rushing torrents, spectacular scenery and one-of-a-kind attractions while letting your excitement flow as freely as the waters. Transportation to Niagara Falls (1.5 hrs travel) and a boxed lunch will be provided by the GENIUS Olympiad. All participants will be dropped at a shopping mall on the way back to campus.
The American side of the Niagara Falls features a variety of adventures to help you make the most of your trip:
GENIUS International Fair is the place where students from all around the world get together to experience a wide variety of ethnic and cultural food, music, and dance. The purpose of the international fair is to provide an opportunity to all participants to promote and share their culture and country. Each country and state will be provided with table space to have displays and promotional items to promote their culture.
In addition, participants will be given an opportunity to perform ethnic and cultural music and dance. The international fair is a fun place to share, enjoy, learn, and make new friendships. Finalists will receive an email about registering stage performance (dance, singing, etc) ahead of time. On-the-spot performance requests may be denied due to time restrictions.
We encourage every group to bring cultural items to display as well as small gifts to exchange with others. Those who will perform will receive a small gift from GENIUS Olympiad.
RIT Open House provides an opportunity to learn about college applications, financial aid, personal statement preparation, as well as one-on-one meetings with various departments and programs at RIT. You will receive in depth information about the programs and application process you are interested in.
