Science Olympiad offers students the ability to blend their love of science with research and creativity. Using their hands and minds, the final product is a brilliant display of the student's scientific knowledge in the areas of physics, chemistry, biology, and earth science. These students excelled in the spring competition taking home several ribbons and medals.
The Science Olympiad tournaments are rigorous yet fun academic competitions that span the various science disciplines of biology, earth science, chemistry, physics, and technology. Tournament events include hands-on laboratory tasks, traditional paper and pencil examinations, and devices engineered by students according to a prescribed set of specifications. During competition, students do not only recall knowledge of science concepts, but they also use process skills for scientific inquiry and data analysis. Students participating in device-building events must carefully plan, test, trouble-shoot, and modify their designs to create a product that will accomplish the desired objective.
