Science Olympiad is a team competition that is patterned after track meets with challenging and motivational events ranging from biology through physics.
Events range from hands-on labs to student-built machines, from outdoor events to paper and pencil tests. There is also a balance between events requiring scientific knowledge and understanding, and others requiring process and application skills. Although some events require an individual from one team to compete against other individuals from other schools, most events require teamwork, group planning, and cooperation. The emphasis is on learning, participation, interaction, having fun, and team spirit.
-Schools compete with a team of up to 15 students
-There are two major tournaments: regionals and the state tournament. The top 30 teams from the regional tournaments around the state compete at the State Science Olympiad. The top team in the state advances to the National Science Olympiad held in May.
-The regionals are usually held the first Saturday in February. The state tournament is usually the first Saturday in March.
-We have a proud history of qualifying for the state tournament
