Science Olympiad

What is Science Olympiad?

What is the Science Olympiad?

 

Science Olympiad competitions are like academic track meets consisting of a series of 23 individual and team events. Students select events that interest them and meet with coaches for training once or twice a week.

 

Emphasis is placed on active, hands-on, group participation. Depending on the event signed up for, students can build a device, take a written test, answer questions verbally, or sometimes a combination of both.

 

Science Olympiad is a great extra-curricular activity. Last year, 40 Olympians learned new things, made new friends, learned to work together to accomplish their goal, received ribbons and trophies for their efforts and had a great time doing it!!! We hope that you’ll join this year’s team. 

 

Science Olympiad is a nationally organized competition in biology, chemistry, physics, earth sciences and engineering! Middle School students from around San Diego County.
